Yay! We started the orchard today with 5 fruit bearing trees in the front yard. Today's plantings included a plum, a fig, a cherry, an apple and an Asian pear. There are also two new trees in the back; an apricot and another apple. I haven't deuced yet whether or not I'd like to move these two up to the front yet, though the possibility is promising. In addition to the fruit trees, I planted two lilacs, because darn it I just love the smell, and three lavenders. I'll mulch everything tomorrow but I can go to sleep happy tonight!
