Only 11 more to plant tomorrow. Yippee….yawn.

What kind of fruits do you dream of planting?

  1. Nice list of trees. Best of luck with them.

    We have 6 apple trees (Holiday, Pippin, McIntosh, Arkblack, red delish and yellow delish). They are all between 1 and 3 years old and we got one apple last year. This year should be a breakthrough year though.

    We also have 2 Asian pears that we get wonderful fruit from, 1 peach, 1 nectarine, 1 pawpaw (1 more coming), medlar, and 2 regular pears. We put most of these in last year so no fruit yet. We also have blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and highbush cranberries.

  2. I have more blueberries, raspberries, and those little white currant that taste like lemonade coming any day now. Perhaps, I’m insane.
    Where did you get the cranberries and what kind are they? When they come I want to hear all about them.
    You better have a warm bran muffin for strength. Maybe… even a b vitamin supliment for all that planting. Did you stock up on muscle rub?

  3. Now it’s my turn to be jealous! I don’t get my trees for another 3 weeks, and I’m only getting 6 apples, 2 cherries, 2 plums, and 2 rowans. Plus some blueberry, cranberry, and current bushes. Happy planting!
