Fruit Trees……or more specifically……. an Advocodo seedling.
With the onset of Autumn – crisp nights and pleasantly warm days – the urge to plant becomes stronger.
I have been trolling the net and checking out books in my local library trying to find what sort of fruit trees I want to plant. Heritage Apples are high on the list – it’s just a matter of deciding which ones to order and then plant. There are only so many apples we can eat and there are already two apples trees in the orchard – “Lady William” and “Granny Smith”. Both “girls” are loaded with fruit but I want to extend the season more with some earlier varieties.
Of course the search for Apples then leads to varieties of cherries, apricots, peaches and other stone fruits and eventually to Advocodo’s.
I don’t know if this tiny seedling will ever set fruit but the fact I have managed to put a seed in a pot, wait months for this shoot to appear is a triumph in it’s self. It will be carefully nurtured until the time comes for it to be planted out in the garden.
Fruit or not this tiny tree is Mother Natures way of saying “I exist”.
