We bought some cheap bare rooted fruit trees to get established in the house garden. The timing for planting some trees was perfect (begining of spring) so we decided we didn’t want to miss the first season while we were on the farm. John planted the peach, apricot, nectarine, 2 and two plums. The house yard already had an apple, and nectarine so we figured more additions to the mixed house orchard wouldn’t be a problem or require a great level of design. The soil closer to the large pine tree was much drier and the only consideration was not to put any trees close to the east fence (closest to the pine tree).
