The weather was chilly, but it was good to get out of the house and go for a drive. Everything is so green at the moment, with all of the recent rain...
Mount Alexander Fruit Gardens are a family run business that offers a 'pick your own' style of service They also visit several local farmers' markets, as well as travelling to Collingwood Children's Farm and St Kilda markets in Melbourne. Details are on their website.
At different times of the year, they offer cherries, apples, apricots, nectarines, peaches, pears and plums in different grades.
They are also "certified in conversion to organic".
Besides being a pleasant drive, the daughter and I also brought home our pre-ordered fruit trees: cherry (Sunburst, I saw this variety on "Costa", very excited!), pear - Packam, pear - Josephine, and a self-pollinating almond.
The trees from the market last week have been planted, and after these latest additions are in, I think that will complete the tree stage of the new chook run/fruit forest!
