The Philadelphia Orchard Project’s plant sale happened a few weeks ago. They had a free fruit tree giveaway to the first 15 people to arrive, so I got my buddy Miles to come with me and we got two fruit trees! We got a Fuyu Imoto Persimmon and a Reliance Peach tree. I also bought a small Blueberry bush, a Pawpaw seedling, and a strawberry plant with white, extra tasty strawberries. I also got to meet Phil Forsyth for the first time. He’s the guy that started the Philly Orchard Project, definitely a guy that I look up to.
I planted the trees and the shrub at my parents house to start a food forest garden there. I also had a comfrey plant that I got from a friend. My buddy had some planting soil with mycorrhizal fungi, so I used that to surround the roots of the tree. Here’s some photos. Some of them are blurry, sorry!
