Just finished planting 29 trees, 11 shrubs, repotting 9 (future) but petites fruit trees in the greenhouse to let them grow for some years, and planting 21 small rhubarbs, strawberries, raspberries etc… As we say in French and probably in English too: my tongue is on the ground and my fingernails are in deep mourning… (they’re black as pitch) and are badly in need of a manicure…
All this work as it would be a lot easier and faster to go to the food store!
I like to be outside, to hear a lot of different birds singing, to look at Nature and the already beautiful results I can see in the orchard: the plum trees in bloom and the Shinseiki in full bloom too!
For those with hawk eyes: YES I have huge « results » with dandelions too!!!
But I am most satisfied to see that all my 5 Zagreb quinces trees has passed the « North Pole » test with success. Waited 5 years before putting them in ground but I could get quince this year or next: I am so exited!
A lot or work but really glad about the results. Considering the efforts put into for own endeavor, are you happy with the result? I know Luis from Portugal should be and that young man with an unusual first name who has transformed his driveway and backward into a botanical garden too. Deeply sorry for not remembering your name, pal…
P.S. Will keep you all posted on the advancement of the orchard in the coming months.
