Are fruit trees worth the hassle?
This may be a stupid question, but with all the work that is required for fruit trees - spraying of pesticides, fungicides, etc etc.....is it really worth it, or would I be better off just focusing on my vegetable and berries?
I've had a large vegetable garden for years, and added an assortment of blackberries, blueberries, and other berries a few years ago. Had great success. I'm now looking at adding some fruit trees, but I get the impression that they're a ton of work and and cause a lot of frustration. Just wondering if it's really worth it. Thoughts?
