I think it’s human nature to think we could push an envelop!!! Maybe, we could be the first fruit grower in our town/county to grow cherries successfully (or not).
I was successful with my apples and A pears for a few years before I expanded it to include stone fruit. It made me realize that no wonder we hardly have any stone fruit orchards in our areas (tons of apples). That should have given me the clue.
You have a lot of space and your orchard is so beautiful and organized. Finding the right varieties that work well in your area is the key. You may want to go heavy on apples and pears and experiment on stone fruit that may work without devoting your entire being for them.
It is true about revising your spraying schedule. This year, I sprayed a lot closer than I did previously. The fruit seem cleaner than before. But again, as soon as I said this, those pests will all show up in my orchard to knock me down a few pegs. Don’t worry about complaining.
It’s better complain to us who are understanding than complaining to our spouses who may said something like
"Why don’t you just get rid of your orchard?" You could guess where I heard it from, right?
