Today was a good day for planting. We picked up the soil we have been waiting for last night at Lowe’s and while we were there, we got suckered into buying a peach tree and a knockout rose bush. I’ve had and heard good things about knockout roses, so this was a no brainer. As for the peach tree – yeah, I fell into that one. I have memories of the peaches we used to get on our tree when I was growing up.
We’ve decided to plant “pretty” things in the front (such as roses and magnolia trees) and plant “useful” things in the back (such as blueberry and raspberry bushes and peach and orange trees). I’d like to eventually put a fence up on one side of the back yard for privacy, so an orchard of trees I can check everyday would be very fitting.
Here are some pictures of what we planted today.
