I can’t believe it’s been 18 months since I last posted! We have been very busy planting, building soil, building shade structures, fences, and rodent (and Jack Russell) proof covers.
Our trees are doing quite well, although they have not yet produced any fruit. I can say, in hindsight, I wish I had not cut the trunks of the trees down to 18″ when we first planted them. The trunks of the trees have not grown in height much.
Here’s how the trees look now…
The Anna is on the left. Our first Dorsett Golden Apple did not survive through the winter. Our new Dorsett Golden Apple is shown on the right.
The Katy Apricot is on the
left and the Golden Kist
Apricot is on the far left.
Our new Aprium (replacement) is now planted next to the Dorsett.
The Santa Rosa is doing fantastic. I pruned all of trees in the orchard about a month ago. All of the light green leaves at the end of the branches are new.
Last, but not least, the two Desert Gold Peach trees.
All of the trees will need to be pruned again soon.
