2011 Pear Trees

Postby Yellow Lab » Fri Feb 25, 2011 1:23 pm

I planted three more pears trees on the farm this year. I planted a Kieffer, Orient and Bartlett variety. I put a 4 ft Tubex Tree Tube over each tree to protect them from browsing deer.

Do you start your trees in pots? i got a bunch of trees from the "tree give-a-way" up here in desoto county... instead of putting them in the yard, for the 4wheeler and lawn-mower to run over, I decided to start them out in 3 gallon pots.. I plan on giving them a good head start before actually sticking them in the ground

I bought these pear trees at a nursery for $15 each.

I put out 9 pear trees on my new place this year and they are already puting out leaves. The big pear trees I have at my old place has a lot of leaves coming on and are starting to bloom.
I am just thinking this is not too good, because we have surely got to get some more
cold weater that will hurt this years crop.

beautiful looking fruit trees !

Used to, it seemed like most all the "family farms" contained an orchard, but you don't see them much anymore.

What are your grapevines growning on ? Are those muscadine's or regular grapes? Do you have to 'baby' the grapes.. I planted some grapevines this year.. I'm trying to decide what to put around them to let them grown on...

I have purple muscadines growing on a double wire trellis.
