A frantic day of planting... and now patience

Getting that last tree in

Our 25 fruit trees arrived three weeks earlier than planned, but with a lot of hustle and some crucial babysitting by grandma, the orchard has been planted! We now have Asian pear, Seckel pear, sweet cherry, pie cherry, peach and plum trees nestled into their holes, watered in well and happily mulched. These are 2-year-old trees, so nothing but 3-4 foot wisps, but we are patient - in it for the longhaul - and looking forward to the sweet taste of the summer of 2016.
