Bushes and Trees

Here is our cherry tree... It appears that we have somehow killed this one too. That means we have murdered two cherry trees in the span of three years. I have no idea how managed to do that as we have babied this tree and made sure it always plenty of water. We feel that perhaps it is our clay soil that is the problem - maybe the cherry needs a better draining soil.

The three apple trees are doing alright, but the one tree is about to blossom but has no leaves yet. If you closely at the photos you an see the red buds getting ready to open.

The four black current bushes are completely loaded with tiny blossoms. It looks like we will get another bumper crop again this year.

Stawberries have been spreading like crazy and are beginning to flower. Unfortunately our soil is also perfect for horsetail which grows vigorously amongst the plants. I weeded it out last weekend, but it doesn't take long before it is up again

I really admire you for looking for a simpler lifestyle. I feel that more and more my soul is looking for that, for a simpler existence.

We're frustrated with our plum trees. They're growing like mad, but no fruit! I think we'll try apple like you.
