Last year we 'claimed' the top of our field as an area that we would use for ourselves. And we quickly decided that some fruit trees would be amazing. Our own little orchard. Well it has taken us until this past weekend to actually do anything about it! A chance trip to a local garden centre for lunch supplied us with our first tree, chosen by Farm Guy.
The new Victoria plum tree has been given pride of place right in the middle of where our new orchard will be!
Apparently it takes five trees to make an orchard. In our case it's one!!
