a family, some chickens, a cat, and some other things that grow

The view from our kitchen window just got three times prettier with the addition of three small peach trees behind the fence and blueberry bushes.
R planted them this weekend and hopes to add three apple trees to the 'orchard' later this week. The small trees have little fuzzy peaches on them, but we are not expecting much of a harvest this year. Either the shock of being planted or the local deer population will minimize our first summer of peaches. Once the trees get tall enough to outreach the deer, though, we are hoping to be able to start adding peach pies, preserves, and wine to our list of things to do in the late summer.
In this shot you can see the zigzag pattern of how R planted them.
