Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27

Our first peach!

In May 2014, we started a small orchard on the north part of our property.  Sure wished that I would have learned about Permaculture Orchard before we planted though.

May 2014 - 5 year old playing in the holes dug waiting for trees

May 2014 - First part of orchard planted
August 2016 - First fruit - Contender Peach
I'm not the biggest peach fan, but WOW did that peach taste good.

When we started, we planted 2 pear trees, 2 peach trees, and 5 apple trees.  This year, we added blueberries, grapes, hazelnut, almonds, strawberries, sweet cherries, sour cherries, 3 more apple trees, and another peach tree.
