My goals for 2017

Posted on

2016 was an incredibly productive year for our homestead. I got a ton done but there is definitely more to do! Here is what I want to get knocked out in 2017:

Plant more fruit trees:

  • 1x Winblo Peach tree
  • 1x Challenger Peach tree
  • 1x China Pearl Peach Tree
  • 1x Korean Giant Oriental Pear tree
  • 1x Au Rubrum Plum tree
  • 1x Emerald Beaut Plum tree
  • 1x Williams Pride Apple tree
  • 1x Rubinette Apple tree
  • 1x Sunflower Paw Paw tree
  • 1x Shenandoah Paw Paw tree
  • 1x Chicago Fig tree
  • 2x Goumi Berry bushes
  • 1x Anna Kiwi

Hands on projects:

  • Build a large strawberry bed
  • Create 12” drip irrigation meshes for my hugul beds
  • Connect underground PVC lines to 12” drip meshes
  • Install permanent treated 2x2 trellises for tomatoes and peppers

Plant more perennials:

I’m sure I’m missing things but this is a decent start. Having a list to work off of is always handy and ensures that nothing gets lost.
