new bare roots

our new bare root fruit trees arrived today.  i spent a little time this afternoon digging holes for them on the west side of the orchard garden---a good activity for a cold day.

plums, cherries, nectarines, an apricot, and a crabapple

i still need to make wire baskets to keep the gophers away from the roots but i've got holes ready for 9 of the trees---not sure where i want to put the crab yet (i'll probably espalier it) so i've got another hole to dig once i figure that out.

been a while since i've done any digging---i had a good time.
