Jim just bought two walnut trees and planted them. Neither of us will ever eat their fruit because we will be dead by then!
This was a gift to the future.
I have doorbelled thousands and thousands of homes and have noticed only a few front yard fruit trees. With the small backyards of growth management I would expect to see land used more productively in the front.
Ornamentals and natural growth are great but their preference has been a mystery. Our yard is full of natural northwest undercover...trees, ferns, etc. But, we also dabble in agriculture. We try to pass that on as it was given to us.
The kids planted peas and onion sets this weekend. The chicks will be here in early March. My grown sons are selecting their giant pumpkin seeds right now. It is a guy thing...pumpkin competition.
Of course, in our family it will be Melanie lifting the giant pumpkins onto the truck!
