This is a great forum, have been here a few months now… I love how everyone is so helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about growing fruits.
I demolished and rebuilt my house in 2015-2016. Started my home fruit orchard in Spring 2016. My entire garden is fruit trees (+ some lawn & roses I was forced to add for peace with the family ) I have been tracking its progress on the DWN forum - http://www.davewilsonforums.com/index.php/showthread.php?t=12225. Many awesome folks on the DWN forum really helped start my orchard and I see many moved to this forum. Decided to continue my thread here starting 2018.
I am fairly new to growing fruit and have made every rookie mistake in the books. Have packed in 50+ trees in a 6000 sq.ft lot. Most trees are doing good despite me trying to kill them any and every way. Thank you for reading! Appreciate all feedback - positive/negative to make my orchard better!
