I would have done one of these boys last fall had doing the smaller girl been less difficult.


    A large canning pot will also work well.

    I am in the process of fencing in the garden ( darn deer) was out of fencing so I opted to dig the holes for the fruit trees.
    I now have them in my future night goat pen . The goats will come after I finish the garden area and fence the pasture for them and build the goat shack.

    the fruit trees are in large 25 gallon tubs now so these are good size holes. They are in rows as I plan to plant on guide wires which is a common way to grow them out here to maximize space . the wires will be about 6 feet and 10 feet up. 2 rows of guide wire per row of trees.
    My tractor was not much help today and it was hot even hit 100 up here in the hills.

    Looks good Hangtown. What kind of fruit trees are you planting?
