We’re guilty of thinking “why plant a fruit tree when it takes so long to produce?” That was especially true when we were moving more. I guess there are some folks who wouldn’t be thrilled to buy a house that already had established fruit trees growing but I would love it if we ever bought a house that already had fruit trees that were producing fruit.
When I was looking for a picture of Addie when she was born, I found this picture of our peach trees in August, 2011.
We had just planted them and they were tiny.
Now, just three years later, they’ve grown so much. I put up over 100 pints of peaches this year and over half of those came from our three trees.
Even the weeds have grown taller. A few more chicken coops have sprung up but I was really surprised to see how much the peach trees have grown in three years.
