Fruit Trees!

We got a great deal on some young potted fruit trees from a local nursery going out of business last year, and they wintered in their pots – it’s time for them to find new homes!¬† One of our challenges is that our chicken yard gets a LOT of sun in the summer, and their only shade structure is set in such a way as so offer very little actual shade when the sun it at it’s hottest. We wanted to find a way to take advantage of the open space in the yard (and the otherwise unusable steep hills that surround it), and also offer the birds some better shade… so we’re trying fruit trees!
