I got a package today!
My pretty babies have arrived, and of course they'll have to wait a day to get put in their home due to the dreary weather we're having right now.
So I have made sure to unwrap their roots from the plastic bag so they can breathe over night. Thankfully it won't go down to freezing tonight. Three apple trees and a peach tree. The peach came from Stark Bro's nursery in this state and the apples came from Illinois.
We have some soil prep to do tomorrow morning and some brush clearing to do, we got most of the brush today, but the thick spot will be done tomorrow. I can't wait to get them in the ground and watch them as they grow this year.
I got an email yesterday saying they had been shipped with arrival today! I have been pacing like an impatient parent, all day. They look very healthy, and are bare root. So getting them in the ground is very important unfortunately I can't till tomorrow.
I am planning on getting pics with them in the ground. I also know my peas will be up in a day or so based on what I saw in my garden. My chicks got put in with the big birds and seem to be doing well with the others.
Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed BE...
