Even though I live in a suburban cookie cutter development, I'm trying to grow as much edibles as I can utilizing the limited space to the max. So naturally, I am squeezing fruit trees into every nook and cranny.
Earlier, we harvested cherries and I have a semi-dwarf apple tree that is loaded this year. (I might post some pictures of them later)
I'm also growing what I call "Espalier Fence Row" I lost an apple tree when tree guard failed and critters girdled the tree, but I still have the remaining apple tree (Arkansas Black), a persimmon (Prok) and two pear trees (Seckel and Magness)
This spring, we had a late frost that blasted the pear blossoms and I only have three fruits on the Seckel and ONE precious fruit on the Magness but the apple tree is full of fruits.
Here is a collage of photos from several view points:
... I also have a peach tree that I really think I didn't plant in the right place. It has been growing but very slowly. This year, we are looking at NINE fruits that are almost ready to harvest
Comparatively speaking my little trees and my little harvest might be modest, but I'm having a lot of fun with them and am happy to be able to hand my kids fruits harvested from our own little "orchard"
OK, let's see YOUR orchard
