How many of ya'll grow fruit, and how many have what would be classified a orchard. What classifies as an orchard, any fruiting bushes or trees or an acreage of same. Ive been attempting to plant an orchard, a tree here a bush there, not an efficient way I know, but the price of trees and plants and the fact of waiting a couple years to get a harvest have been limiting factors. I also insist on planting fruits on hilly otherwise untillable ground, I dig out terraces by hand and plant in stair stepped rows. I have no scientific proof but being on hillsides seems to offer some frost protection as the frost flows down into the valley. So far I have 4 apples ( I lean towards semi dwarf) 3 cherries, 2 peaches several plums and a couple hundred blueberries. A hundred thornless blackberries, a dozen grapes, and 75 raspberries.
