Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
Two years ago hubby & I purchased a home. We narrowed our choices down to 2 houses.

Choice 1 we called the better homes & garden house. It was beautiful like right out of the pages of the magazine.

Choice 2 we called big tree lot. We knew the house would need some updating work, but it had an acre + lot with about 75 trees, including 17 fruit trees.

We went with choice 2 because of the fruit trees.
 Quoting: Oh Kay

Specially good choice if you have kids or plan to. BH&G house won't look that way with kids around, unless you are way overly repressive with your kids.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19852008


My kids are adults and one already has kids of their own.

The happy looks on my grandkids faces this year as we picked fruit off the trees was awesome.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
Thanks! We have talked about raised beds since the tiller is an issue and we have tons of leaves and grass cuttings, etc., so we'll most likely go ahead with that, too.

I don't know why I find this so exciting. Maybe it's my sinus pill! LOL

Seriously, nothing is better than home-grown food.
 Quoting: Mandevilla


It is much easier to dump the clippings in the garden then bag them and hall them to the street. Just do it in the fall before the winter and let it sit over winter. You may have to add a couple of inches of top soil for seeds if the compost is not completely turned into soil in the spring. I did this with corn one year. I planted corn into the sheet mulch raised garden and also in the ground as an experiment. equal amounts of water. The corn in the compost was a foot taller then the corn in the ground. The only problem was the compost soil was to loose to hold the corn up and I had to stake the stalks of corn but they did grow well. On the other hand tomatoes, peppers, squash and other plants grow well in the compost.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
In Hungary (from when I come) I worked in an orchard during the communist period. When there were just to much apple in the autumn guess what they did with it?

Yepp, they dig enormous holes and poured all the nice apple into them, rather than give it away freely, and they were the "communists".

The Matrix we live in f:ing crazy beyond belief.

If something is free then it had to be destroyed or they have to forbid it.

I rest my case.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
All I know is what several of my friends in school told me about as they prepared to get their BSs in horticultural design. They were told emphatically that fruit bearing trees were "not suitable" for urban design because they were "messy and stained the sidewalks and pavement". Therefore, I think that is why we have lots of non-fruitbearing Bradford pears and Japanese cherries used in towns and cities across the US.

Even if the fruit from these trees was not harvested, we would end up feeding a lot of wildlife. As usual, local governments talk "green" but are really anything but. This attitude could be easily overcome with just a trendy "style change" aimed towards ag universities and city governments.

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
I have 5 citrus tree and a loquat in my back yard for myself and friends. I planted 9 citrus and a loquat in the front yard for neighborhood children.

The fruits come in at different times and two of them make fruit year round. I planted them four years ago, so they are well established. In fact they have survived a hurricane and 14 degree weather, so I think they will live for the future.
 Quoting: We Who Watch

And I have a backyard garden planned for next spring. The front yard will get another tree, perhaps apple, persimmon, plum, or olive. I also have room for about 10 bushes out front.

Note that this is being done on a normal residential lot. Trees and bushes out front. Trees and garden in fenced back yard. Shouldn't be any city problems since out of sight is usually out of mind.

Next door neighbor noticed my yard during the spring and let me help him select some citrus trees for his yard. Between us we now have 10 different kinds of citrus in the ground. It's cool when neighbors start to get "it."

Re: why aren't we planting more fruit trees? are we stupid?
Remember when California had tons of orange tree groves? wtf ever happened to all of them??

anyways, just do this simple thing. Anytime you eat an apple, avocado, or anything with a seed just go outside wherever you are and bury the seeds, pit or apple core, instead of throwing them away. Some are bound to fruit.
