New Fence

| 0 comments

After the deer nibbling on our newly planted fruit trees, it was time for an electric fence to save this new orchard. The new fence surrounds 4 apple trees, 2 plum trees, 2 cherry- and 2 pear trees and a sweet chestnut. The plan is to turn this orchard into a ‘food forrest’, each of the fruit trees being surrounded by a guild of perennials and some annuals. Around the fence (and next to the road) we will plant a line of walnut-, hazelnut- and sweet chestnut trees. Because making a good entrance is important, we concreted in a nice gate and decorated it with – what else – a deer skull found on the land. Welcome to the Ranch!
