Orchard

The orchard is progressing nicely. We have fruit and nut trees as well as blueberry and blackberry bushes/vines. We also have a few raspberry canes but they are not really doing that well. Fall 2016 we added elderberry bushes.

The blueberry bushes look good and are producing nicely. We are getting a nice crop of blackberries each year. Even though we have to share with the raccoons, we still get enough to make cobblers, jam and frozen packages for later. I make jam with those over the winter. Perhaps there is blackberry wine in our future. 😛 As I said earlier, we are working on getting the raspberries to grow. We’ve added grapes also. Lots and lots of fruit.

We have the following fruit and nut trees:

  • Cherry
  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Peach
  • Plum
  • Apricot
  • Kiwi
  • Pecan
  • Almond
  • Fig
  • Mulberry
