Yea, fruit trees are a lot of work,and some days when you pick up a disease thats hard to get rid of i wonder if it's worth it.
But i was taught that you can extra so you have it for slim times, the quality stays good for three years and things like pickles can go five.
The produce that we don't grow we trade for, the guy i get my pears from, i give corn to for freezing, another guy, i supply cabbage to and he makes the sauerkraut...... And so on

Now the strawberries I will stay with anyone but them fruit trees and me just dont do right. But Bald Knob Arkansas was the berry Captial of the word until Cal. took over. And I was raised in berry patch, Then worked At the Auction shed as Auctioneer for a number years. My how times change there is less tha 5 acers in the county today.

That is interesting. The fruit trees have always facinatd me, so when we moved onto this 9 acre property last December I had to start an orchard.
I have no clue what i'm doing, but will learn.
