Keeping on Planting

Just a quick update on what we’re up to.

I’ve got a few more seeds in for various trees. The best time to plant a fruit tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is now.
Put in a lot of cherry seeds as well as peaches, nectarines and plums. They have all been cold stratifying for the last few months so hopefully we get some positive results. Cherry’s were the main thing this time around with almost 50 seeds in a pot, hoping to get 8-10 trees but I’ll be happy with even a couple.

The olive barrel irrigation experiment is done, the second try lasted 2 weeks, 6 days and about 12 hours. Very slightly short of the 3 week goal but close enough for me.

On the Perth homestead front I bred the white female rabbit today, the black female should be giving birth some time soon assuming the breeding took. They are both pretty much new mums so its the trickiest litters to get through.
