Here is where we plan to bury Bruce. Actually, this stake marks the spot where we’ll plant our Bruce Plum, but the future orchard does look sort of like a cemetery at the moment. With thetree spacing chart that I created in hand, I walked around the areas where we plan to plant our fruit and nut trees. I measured the recommended spaces and pounded stakes into the ground where each tree should go. There was much pondering and re-hammering as I considered the sun’s location, the height of the trees, and so on. When I washed the dishes that night, I could easily see the fruit tree stakes from the window above the sink. I’ll enjoy gazing at the orchard from that window in the future.
