Planting Time

A cold frosty week with nice days for planting some new trees.

My wife Jenny and myself planting some white and yellow nectarines, mainly Bradford varieties but some from the French Riviera breeding programs as well.

Our youngest son Mark, helping to plant. Mark is about the age that I started working on this orchard with my father and mother Allan and Fay.

New Plums
Trying some of the Bradford varieties in the Candy series. The ground these young trees are planted into was ripped, with fertiliser applied and main lines for irrigation, in autumn 2010. We hope these trees will produce some nice fruit for our customers
