Planting the last fruit trees

And also planting the lavender and Ivy plants

Finally I found the time to plant the lavender and Ivy plants. With the help of our children it did not take so much time at all. With every fruit tree we planted in our new beds we plant 3 Lavender and 2 Ivy plants, as far as we have plants for that. So take aside the straw, plant the plants, and put back the straw without covering the new plants. We did not have enough plants for every tree, but we will breed new plants out of these the coming years our selves. I am just going to wait for these plants to settle and grow first.

Our field with the new beds was not big enough for all of the fruit trees, so we planted 2 more rows some where else on out property. We still have to put straw around them. With one row we put an electric fence around the trees so the dogs can’t get to them, but we did not have enough fencing for the other row. Luckily we have noticed that the dogs do not bite on these trees, they are big enough already, so we can take the electrical fence down again. I need this fencing for my straw bed, which is getting a thick layer of hay this year.
