Tis the season to plant.

So far this spring:
5 peach trees
1 pear tree
2 blueberry bushes

This makes a total of:
8 peach trees. Three of the older trees are rather small and not doing well. I might have to replant next spring if they do not make it. In all I am rather disappointed in how my peach trees are doing. Some of them have been in the ground for several years and do not seem to be growing.

3 pear trees. My third son and I planted a couple of pear trees several years ago and they are loaded with pears every year. In March of 2015 I planted another pear tree in the large chicken yard.

5 fig trees. One of the fig trees is older and doing well. 4 of the fig trees were planted in 2014. In 2015 my wife and I are not going to plant any fig trees this year.

6 blueberry bushes. Four of the bushes were planted in 2014, two more were planted in March of 2015.

4 apple trees. I need to plant more apple trees to ensure good cross pollination, but not this year.

3 satsuma trees.

It is getting a little late in the spring to be planting much more. For the rest of 2015 my wife and I will focus on getting the trees we planted established.

What fruit trees are you planting in 2015? Share you thoughts in the comment section.
