This is the third and fourth years for most of these trees, so we should be able to harvest some fruit this summer… if the deer don’t get there first, of course.

I kept meaning to get the peach tree in all its blossom-bedecked glory… but of course we had pouring rain the night before I could finally get out there!

The apple trees are budding up too – I hope I get some Jonathans for pies this year.

    I’m wondering if we’ll get an early harvest due to the warmer spring temps?

    Could be! If the temps stay relatively low and steady, you could get HUGE broccoli!

    Why not surround these trees with wire baskets like tomato cages only much bigger.,and chicken wire to keep the deer out. You can unwrap in order to access the fruit. Pollinators could get through the chickenwire.

    I had thought about maybe making a small orchard deer fence rather than re-fencing the whole lot. Wrapping each tree, while more work (and requiring many more posts to be sunk), would at least not make me have to go through gates to get anywhere. Hm.
