Today I planted three peach trees that I scored for only 5 bucks each! There is a field on the other side of the driveway that I plan a fruit orchard. I think the peaches are a nice start. The loafing shed in the pasture is slap full of composted horse manure which was ideal for conditioning the soil. I wish I had taken photos of the kids “helping”. Their ideal job is irrigating, and they do tend to irrigate each other!

Manure stockpile

Some fierce looking thunder clouds rolled in and I almost danced a jig at the thought of our fledgling orchard receiving some nourishing rain. So with a smile on my lips, I tucked the bunnies in and headed “home.”

Here comes the rain!
Batten down the bunnies!
