What's in the Orchard?


This is a list of what is growing in our mixed orchard and forest so far… Some trees were existing, a couple were gifts and a lot have been purchased. I’ve included the bush tucker species I’ve identified so far as well. I am also propagating seeds of edible tree plants, in the hope that next spring (or the one after perhaps?) I will be able to plant some of those.
