Compost for Orchard site
I am moving our original compost piles(2) to one area we plan to plant apple trees. The best advice for moving to a climate so extreme as the desert southwest, was to check out the neighborhood and see what the neighbors are growing. Then you know what you can grow.
So we know that apple, pecan, pistachios, and pomegranate trees grow for sure here. So we are going to plant the above listed trees. I do know that some friends in town have a peach tree, and another has a cherry tree, but in the canyon area we live in are the 4 listed. So our orchard is no longer on the drawing board but in the soil/ground prep stage! Yay!
