Yesterday I popped by my favorite nursery, Watson’s in Puyallup to checkout their bareroot espalier fruit trees. Not only did I find the tree I was looking for, but I found about a million other awesome things as well. Isn’t this moss basket/purse gorgeous? I think they’d be pretty easy to make.
Check out this Fornetto pizza oven. Ain’t she pretty? The price tag though, it’s a whopper. I wonder how many wood fired pizzas I’d need to make to break even?
I ended up going home with a 4-way grafted apple tree: Honeycrisp, Gravenstein, Liberty and Spartan apples. When I was planning out the garden I had originally wanted to buy 2 more espalier trees this spring, 1 pear and 1 apple. But since we already have 2 other pear espalier trees, and now a new pea trellis along the fence, I think a single 4-way apple tree was the right choice.
I highly doubt I’ll get any apples this year, but you never know… Miracles can happen, right? Do you have any grafted trees in your garden? Have they done well for you?
