Plum Trees Arrived!

I ordered American Plum trees through one of the local USDA conservation programs in March.  I didn’t hear anything, so I assumed it was a wash because of all the shut downs.

Nope~!

They called on Wednesday to have me pick up the trees on Friday, and they had many apologies because the green house shorted them.

This was not a concern – I only wanted 10 trees, but the closest USDA conservation program was out.  In fact, the only one I could find that still had them was in sets of 25 instead of 10.

19 trees is still more than what I wanted.

Here they are:

They’ve juuuuust started budding, so I’m hoping we won’t have much for freezes from here on out.

I planted 5 in the backyard, one between our apricot trees where one of those trees was eaten by deer and died:

And four in a row where we used to have a mulberry tree:

Here’s to hoping that they grow!

Do you have any fruit trees?  What types of fruit do you prefer?  I try to only plant items I like to eat.  Inquiring minds want to know!
