New Additions to the Orchard

The orchard at Grace Valley Farms is once again being expanded! So far this spring, we have added 2 plum trees, 2 pear trees, 3 apples trees, and one cherry tree.
Doug digs a hole for a new fruit tree. The soil was nice and soft after the recent rain showers.
We purchased some new trees from C & O Nursery.

Ben waters a newly planted tree.

One of our new apple trees - an early-ripening Fuji.

Ben and his puppies, Ruger, Abby, and Bullet, take a break from tree planting.

Abby, our German Shepherd puppy, is now 8 months old.

A new Superior plum tree.

Spring has sprung! The Underwood plum tree we planted last year is blooming!

The pastures are turning green and the sheep will soon be able to graze on the fresh, tender grass.

"The hay appeareth, and the tender grass showeth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered.  The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field." - Proverbs 27: 25-26
