I'm psyched....I just finished up planting my new fruit orchard on the side of the garage, two dwarf apple trees, a pear tree, a nectarine tree, a peach tree, and a cherry tree....Patty, thanks to your video's I went for it. I put the trees, two rows of three ten feet apart. In the middle, I put 25 Ozark Strawberry plants....had to go nuts!....now as I sit back and enjoy the view, I hope it works! My son and I put a plastic mesh fence around the strawberries to protect from the critters and we also put some inverted tomato cages over the little fruit trees to keep the deer away, we'll hope for the best. It was a great day here in connecticut, temps in 70's!

Woohoo! You'll be eating a lot of fruit soon, that is awesome. I agree with Kim, that is a lot of trees, but man you'll be saving a lot in the long run. Good luck with that!
