My name is Carrie, I live in Zone 7a in northern Utah, I am excited that I found this forum as I have been researching fruit tree varieties.
My gardening interests:
*** Fruit trees** -
I have a mature Montmorency Cherry, and Bartlett Pear (I am battling a bad infestation of fire blight on this one).
My apple trees were all added to my collection within the last year; Jonathan, Newton Pippin, Macoun, Frostbite, Kerry Irish Pippin, Belle de Beskoop, Monark, Sweet Bough, Baldwin, Wickson, Harrison and Braeburn. Most were purchased as bare roots from Trees of Antiquity.
Peach - Rio Oso Gem newly planted (I am currently trying to decide on my other peach choices (I have room for two more)
I have a large cane berry patch with an assortment of red and black berries
I enjoy starting my tomatoes from seed in March when I am dreaming of warm earth and green plants.
We also keep two honeybee hives.
I enjoy baking, pressing, preserving and consuming the fruits of my labors.
I look forward to learning from the forum!
