It occurred to me that there haven't been many pictures of the orchard itself on the blog. Today was a barmy 23 degrees C sunny September day so I took some photos. They can be viewed via this link to our Picasa web album.
When growing young trees you are advised to take any fruit off the trees in their early years, so that the trees develop a strong root system. So, when you look at these photographs there isn't much to see, fruit wise. Hopefully though you'll see significant progress in how the orchard looks. We've lots of work still to do but we're getting there.
Here is a photo of the sign Trisha made for us.
