Ok, this is cause for some excitement! I am going to order my peach tree for my front yard and three raspberry stalks for my backyard!!!! How cool will it be to just go outside and pick a peach off the tree and eat it?? Or to just walk outside and pick 7-8 peaches and make up a batch of peach jam,, or peach syrup,,, the list is endless. Gosh I hope one peach tree does me!

 

I have no idea how many raspberries a few stalks will give you but the idea of getting a nice beautiful bowlful suits me just fine.

 

 

one more step to self reliance!

My grandpa had a peach tree in the back yard and raspberry canes along a fence. He declared them to be his two favorite things in the whole world to eat in the summer. He was so proud when he got two TINY peaches the first year, then about the 4th year he got bushels! When he died, that tree was giving off about 3-5 boxes. We would get at least 6-8 crates of raspberries, too.

 

Such memories! I can talk all day... :blah:

 

I'm so thrilled for you!

I'm SOOOOO excited for you as well!!!!!

I can only begin to imagine how happy you'll be when you go outside to gather your first bowlful! :cele:

 

Ooooo, we just put out 9 blueberry bushes & 3 raspberry bushes over the weekend.

I'm with you, I can't wait to have some berries to freeze, can or even just eat fresh.

Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmm.........................

 

We're trying for 2 cherry trees this year, then I want 2 apple, 2 peach & 2 pear trees. Then maybe some grapes in a few years?

We should then be set for all of our fruit needs, if everything grows & produces well.

 

I can't even begin to imagine how much money you will save by having your own fruit!

 

Way to go! :woohoo:
