I am inspired by @SMC_zone6 ’s and @jcguarneri ’s threads about their orchards. I would like to record my small fruit orchard and talk about our small orchards, things we grow, how we cram as many fruit trees in small spaces, our success and failures, etc.
I call my orchard small because it is on 0.3 acre lot. After the house, a garage, a deck, a shed, a driveway, the actual growing space has been rather limited. I have maxed out my yard with about 30 fruit trees of various types, several are young trees. I know some of us has smaller orchards. Most, if not all of us live in urban or suburban areas. Growing fruit in small spaces often inspire creativity. Love to hear and see those creative ideas.
I want to start with my strawberries grown under jujube trees so both don’t need spray, so far.
They are June bearers. I thought I had Jewel but someone said Earliglo have distinct necks like these.
