My orchard plan

Hi all,

Check out my orchard spreadsheet! I figured i needed something to keep track of all the trees I have. Now i can pinpoint the next tree by assessing the ripening times.

Nice variety....are the dates based on your actual area or just from catalogs and such? I see you don't have any for the figs/bananas/grapes..

just got lazy and didn't add the figs, bananas, grape ripening times. I wanted to make sure the stone fruits bore fruit throughout the seasons.

I used the growers dates from central California ( i am in southern semi-coastal), so they should be close, but at least the dates were all from one source.

You must be talking about dave wilsons ripening chart. I used that too when I decided what fruits to plant. I'm sure they'll be a little of since it's based on their location, but the general idea knowing what is early/mid/late is really helpful.

If anyone wants to see their chart I linked below...

Here is a link that might be useful: Fruit Harvest Chart

Sweet. In fact, I referenced L.E. Cook's information on a variety to variety basis. Wish i knew about that link earlier, would have made it easier. Thanks.
