Growing a Home Orchard for Self Sufficiency Planting and managing your own home orchard can be a very rewarding activity. It takes time and patience to develop a productive orchard, but the payoffs are worth it. Growing fruit trees is measured in terms of years, not months or seasons, but once your young trees are established, the time investment needed to maintain them is relatively low.
Love the setting with the flowering fruit trees, ladders & the sedan chair. photo by Lucinda Lambton World of Interiors, July,1992
