What’s growing in the mini orchard
The mini fruit and nut orchard in our yard expanded by two recently.
The pawpaw, AKA “America’s forgotten fruit,” produces a mango-like fruit.
I’m sure it will be a while before we get our first “poor man’s banana” off this little tree, but it sure looks happy.
Sadly, the same cannot be said for our new pear sapling, which seems to have gone into transplant shock.
Our friends from Bear Creek will be in the area today, and I hope they have some advice.
The tree looked awesome right up until it went in our ground…
Meanwhile, the tiniest baby apples on a tree we planted last spring are getting fat!
And our potted Meyer lemon tree has little lemon nubs!
