There has been a flurry of activity in the orchard. Once the tedious part of building the fence was complete, we started the fun part of buying the trees. Then Steve collected 3 trailer loads of yummy soil mix, and with that plus a heap of cow manure, he dug enormous holes to fill with rich soil to give the trees a great start.
So with all this lot plus the existing mulberry, fig, lemon, lime, mandarin and orange trees, I think we've covered most of the fruit in existence! We've chosen varieties pretty carefully, considering chill factor - we are in a low-medium chill area as we don't have frosts, and when we've planted more than one variety of a fruit, tried to choose ones that fruit at slightly different times, to try and avoid being inundated with fruit all in the same few weeks!
