I have a few apple trees, but they aren't producing very well. There are
lots of abandoned orchards here, so I can go collect apples, but since they
aren't tended, they aren't the best...small and buggy. I have 2 pear trees
that produce all the pears I can use (I have a pantry full of pear butter).
One peach tree...not nearly enough; I love peaches. I have a small one
planted, but I'm thinking of buying another large potted one locally that
will produce next year. I also have the figs in the greenhouse, and I just
ordered a Lapin cherry (hardy sweet cherry...hard to find).
What sort of fruit trees grow in your climate? I'm sure apples wouldn't. I
love figs, and I always thought date palms would be fun. Did you see the
youtube video that someone posted about Greening the Desert? Lots of
posibilities...that kind of greening probably cools and humidifies the whole
area, allowing a wider variety of plants.
