Yesterday we bought two new members for our orchard family. 2 years old American blueberry "Bluecrop" and one year old apricot Aurora.
Bluecrop blueberry is large bush blueberry with big sour fruits that ripen in mid July. It like sunny places and tolerates drought. It's highly resistant to diseases and bugs. Apricot Aurora is early variety with medium size yellow fruits.
Since there was an announcement of possible strong wind and rain for next few days and my apricot is without container I decided to plant my new fruits today.
First I decided to plant my blueberry. It needs smaller hole so it was easier to plant it. Also I had help in digging.
After he finished digging my helper decided to rest inside his work. I had to wait with planting until his highness decided his break was over. Of course I forgot to take photo of my blueberry but you can see it behind my little beast.
I've planted my blueberry and now we can hope it will like it's new home.
My apricot is huge for one year old tree so I had to dig a big hole.
It felt like digging a grave. By the time I finished with it I wanted to lay inside it and die.
Again I forgot to take photo after planting, actually I was distracted with all the pretty flowers in my orchard.
With this I finished all the work for now. Now we are waiting for the rain to start sowing.
I really need a break from all the work. Lets hope the rain will come soon.
