Fruit Trees, What We’ve Planted so Far!
We started our orchard! There are already some fruit trees on the property, but we wanted a few more to add to the variety. Like so many other things going on around our new, place I am so excited about all the fresh fruit!
We have a section of the property that the previous owners planted several trees, some are not going to make it and we will have to remove them, they also planted a variety of trees in the area. The fruit trees that have already been planted by the previous owners are Apple, pear and a couple we are not sure yet until they start to bloom. This is our future orchard!
What We’ve Planted so Far!
Bing Cherry, Plum, Pink Lady Apple, Combo Apple tree with 4 different varieties, Pear and a couple Peach Trees!
Besides being absolutely delicious Peaches offer a rich treasure of minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, manganese, phosphorous, zinc, copper, and are a good source of dietary fiber as well.
We plan on eating them fresh, freezing them and making a variety of jams, smoothies, and other healthy desserts.
Bing Cherry Tree
Cherries can help reduce inflammation, powerful antioxidants that help fight free radicals in the body.
To be planted:
Apple Trees we want a variety and are looking into getting a grafted apple tree. When Ryan first talked about getting an apple tree with several different varieties of apples I was like that sounds like a GMO tree. So I did a bit of research and they are not GMO Trees and the grafting process is pretty fascinating. We might try and graft a few apple trees ourselves.
