we have a mulberry tree we where given in summer still sitting in it's pot and i said to dad i reckon we should plant it yesterday night when i showed him where our new Guava tree was so we worked it out where i have Just came inside from digging the hole and planting it our fruit tree numbers are going up :)
We now have 10 fruit trees, 2 of them are purple plums, one green plum , two mulberry trees, one fig tree , 1 mandrine tree, two guavas and two Persimion trees, i wouldn't mind adding an apple tree and another fig tree to it as well.
My compost pile out in the paddock is doing well as well i have been using it in my gardens and will put some around all the fruit trees.

Second post on my blog for April now, not much longer till may now.
Well i am going to get into this post right now it could be a bit longer then my normal ones but i hope you enjoy it and my blog. Here goes......Not much has happened in my garden been to wet havent even order my seeds yet i have them all sitting on my seed order account but haven't bought them yet so to speak hopefully i get that done soon.
We lost our Rhubarb Patch over summer it is before we lost it. We ended up just rebuilding it with slippers and add goat poo to it, ended up filling the bed up with some free rhubarb crowns i got.
Where i got the Rhubarb crowns from (our Neightbours up the road) i also got this Guava tree from its not like the one we have already our old one is a StrawBerry Guava and this on is yellow and looks like a pear.
Also will be getting a few Bannana trees from up there as well, the lady up there she is nice to me lets me pick up cow poo out of her paddocks, good place to swap some up there she lives by herself.
