Planting Fruit Trees
We live on such an amazing piece of property and we wanted to utilize the hillside that enjoys eastern and southern sun exposure. We already have a 25 year old Gravenstein apple tree, but we wanted to add a few more fruit trees to our repertoire. I planted a Meyer lemon tree, a Cado avocado tree, and an Anna apple tree. The Meyer lemons will be good anytime for a bump of fresh vitamin C or when we need a lemon for cooking. We all love avocados here, so I know they won't go to waste. And apples are my favorite fruit and I enjoy using them in baking, chutneys, and in my lunches.
