There is something about a bare-root tree that is quite beautiful all in its own way. And, with bare-root season upon us we brought home a total of 10 new trees this weekend. There was a lot of walking the perimeter, talking about what should go where, which need close proximity to a particular pollinator, and deciding how to settle these trees into our garden. We do not have a traditional looking orchard, where trees are in perfect rows and organized by type. But, rather, we have them worked in among the hens, our little man and and his swings, trucks, scooters and such. It works wonderfully, and come spring the peppering of blossoming trees strewn about is quite beautiful.
