Update on Hay Bale Garden, New Additions and Backyard Orchard Culture 4-30-14

I can’t believe how much has grown or started to grow in the past two weeks.  Today I  added a Fiji and Golden Dorsette apple, a muskadine grape vine and a Kiwi vine.  I also purchased a Haas Avacado but haven’t decided where to plant it yet.

After watching some videos on permaculture and  some videos by Dave Wilson  on backyard orchard culture my plan is to add more and more fruit trees.

The two apple trees I planted were spaced 19″ apart and I will be pruning them back quite a bit tomorrow.

 

 

Here are the rest of the pictures from my front yard, the hay bales, grow buckets and raised beds.
