The last few days have been a whirlwind of activity at Sweet Retreat Orchard!
The last month has been focused mostly on infrastructure. The fence is up around most of the farm and we’re making a lot of progress on the rabbit fencing. We mentioned on facebook that we have the shed in, and we’ve also set up a garage. We’ve also been digging trenches for the electricity.
The trees started arriving on Monday. The first trees that we got in were Persimmons. Over the first day, we went from empty fields to having trees!
We now have about 100 trees and bushes ready for planting. Many of the trees are have fruits or flowers as well. It’s very exciting to not only see the trees, but also see the fruit starting to grow.
In just a few days we’ve gone from an empty field to having over 80 trees planted, with many more coming!
