Last weekend Darin and I planted 15 trees on our Whakapirau property. You can see in the photo how muddy the road was. We got rained on intermittently, but the bare-root trees needed to be planted as soon as possible. They are varieties of peach, apple, pear, and nectarine, as well as cherry, feijoa, fig, and plum. Another 22 trees were delivered on Friday, but we were prevented from taking them up for planting by a massive storm that hit both Saturday and Sunday. I am wondering if the trees we planted last weekend are still standing upright. We will need to have a fence built around the orchard, and are expecting a quote to arrive any day now. Unfortunately, the fence guy is booked through September.
