It's been another day here in the rainforest we call home. Another day not seeing the sun. Another day of muddy dogs and paw prints on the floor. I am praying tomorrow things will be different, they HAVE to be different. So to cheer myself up I thought I would post some pictures of my emerging fruit orchard.
Do you know what kind of work out it is to dig holes for trees to go in? I ended up with nine trees in all. I dug half of the holes and planted and filled in all 9. How good did I feel after pleading with my husband to please dig a few holes for me and in the time it took me to dig one he had the rest finished? It pays to have a hot husband handy who can dig a hole. Please note the "ugly" face Keegan is making, this because my little photographer Avery was taking the pictures for me. Also note that Tripp is helping. Every time I started a new hole he would yell "I help" and would proceed to put dirt back IN the hole.
Another angle. So now I just wait for the fruit to appear. 4 apples 4 peach and 1 cherry, I can't wait! You can see my sad empty hen house in the back and Tripp still helping. I will be getting some bantam chickens this summer, that way no one will be able to tell if they are chickens or doves. Smart thinking huh?!
