Fruit trees in the orchard paddock

The lower and middle rows of the orchard paddock
The lower and middle rows of the orchard paddock – January 2008

The first of the trees were planted here in 2004. Here’s a list of what we’ve got in the ground of this sunny and relatively gently sloping paddock. I know the page looks a bit basic, but in a way that’s publishing imitating nature. You’ve got to sow if you want to grow (just thought of that line then).
