got our dwarf fruit trees in today.


Recommended Posts



 we don’t have much room to plant that trees that gets enough light so I need potted trees that get roasted in the front of our place.  it is hard to find true dwarf fruit trees but I managed. we got a stella cherry tree that grows to about 5’  it will take a few years before it grows enough to produce (bummer) and I had to pay way extra to get fruiting size trees of the other ones. a leprechaun dwarf nectarine a garden annie dwarf apricot it will get at max 10’ it will go into the one spot I have left in the back yard. a bonanza dwarf peach tree. I debated on making planters but looking at the cost of wood and having to haul it home (I ride the bus) I found some 28” plastic pots on amazon for 42.00 each

 I was hoping to get the black gold soil from amazon but they want 45.00 for a 2cf bag thats too much so I guess it is time to bug my daughter.

yes here is a pic. man the pots were 45.00 and it took 4cf of black gold for each pot another 24.00 these guys cost me a lot of money. it is going to take awhile for them to pay for themselves. I should have figured out pot cost before hand I was going to put them in 22" pots but I figured this way I don't have to repot them for a long time.

@doggie How are your trees coming along? I have 5 dwarf citrus, apple, and pear. My dwarf cherry seems to be a dud. I started with bare root trees also. The apple & pear are grafted with 5 varieties. What zone are you in? I'm zone 10b.

the nectarine has a few fruit on it the peach bloomed but did not have fruit. the cherry it will be 3 years i think before it is ready. the apricot is just recovering and still does not have all it's leaves or full size leaves. thats disappointing it was the most expensive and largest. the apples are going crazy they will have a lot of fruit.  the apricot is the first pic  the Chinese honey berry with the purple fruit is really good though not much fruit the first year. 

the cherry is growing like crazy little nectarines and apples peach tree is growing great though no fruit. IMG_0510.JPG

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      Someone please remind me to buy peanut butter. Seriously, I have been meaning to get some for at least three weeks, and everytime I remember, the shops are already closed!

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
