What fun! The Backyard Orchardist is getting to meet new fruit gardener friends all over the country as we go on virtual tour. We’re stopping in to visit a number of gardening, homesteading, and permaculture blogs and hope you will join us in visiting these great stops. Here are some past stops, with more to come soon:
North Coast Gardening—Yours truly has written a special guest post on Medlars for all of North Coast Gardening readers. Here’s what Genevieve says about it “I love how you brought some literature and history into the mix to make people feel even more intrigued about this unusual fruit. And your practical suggestions were amazing.” Hope you’ll enjoy it.
On my recent visit to Phoenix, Arizona, Greg Peterson of Urbanfarm.org gave me a fabulous tour and shared his creative ideas for how you can grow fruit in your urban setting in a climate very different from what I’m used to here in northern Michigan. We’ve put a podcast together to share some of what got us both involved in fruit home gardening and share lots of tips and hints on how you can get started too. Enjoy!
Montana Homesteader—Annie has shared a lovely review and ways The Backyard Orchardist will help her with her home orchard this coming season. Thank you! I’m so glad you found lots of useful information. Check out Annie’s Pinterest and Facebook as well.
