Uncovered treasures

May 17, 2013

I bought my spring trees and two of them were apricot trees.

Apricots are a bit of a challenge to grow in Michigan.  They really don’t like our late frosts. 

One of the ways to compensate for this is to plant them on the north side of the house.  The thinking is that the cooler temperatures cause them to blossom later so they don’t get hit by a late frost. 

About ten years ago I let my husband talk me into burying a perfectly good stone fence in our back yard so it would be easier to mow.  I know, I know when you know better you do better.

Now that we are no longer mowing our three acres I decided to uncover the sweet stone fence and plant my apricots in front of it, and I am so happy I did!

I just need to mulch and plant some lilies and other perenials around them. 

Oh and do a major repair job on the fence.  That’s OK I love projects.
