21 Fruit Trees

Our 21 fruit trees arrived today - the first purchase for our new garden.  We headed over to Green Acres Nursery on Valentines day, opting for fruit trees over flowers this year for Valentines day. 

What . . . 21 fruit trees??? Aw, the wonder of grafting . . . 4 actual trees with branches of different fruits - an apple espalier (6 different types of apples), a pear espalier (again, 6 in 1), and two "fruit cocktail" or "fruit salad" trees with plums, peaches, nectarines, plucot, etc. And one lone kumquat tree. Now we just have to dig the holes and get them in the ground.

There is so much work, and fun, to be had as we start this new garden.  Starting off with a blank "canvas" is more intimidating than I thought it would be.  So much planning, and dreaming, is ahead and I hope to make progress on the development of this blog, as well as the growth of our little garden.
