Orchards Just About Complete

Yesterday we took a trip to Joppa, Alabama and visited North Alabama Nursery where we purchased five Methley Plum trees, eight Climax blueberry bushes, fifteen Tifblue blueberry bushes, one River Birch shade tree, and one Tulip Poplar tree. Wow, what a load!

The plums have been planted. We cut them back to whips to encourage branching at the height we like. The shade trees were strategically placed to help alleviate some of mid-summer’s burning sun, both varieties are fast growers. We hope to finish setting out the blueberries today. We’re very excited! The remaining fruit to be planted are muscadine vines and plans are to get those in next fall. Yay!
