Homesteading Package #1: Backyard Beginner
- Backyard Beginner -
2 Apples trees, 2 Pear trees, 3 Red raspberries, and 3 Blueberries; all pollination-compatible varieties.
Have you ever considered less conventional yard space? Between constant mowing, fertilizing, and watering, the American obsession with traditional grass lawns is not doing our planet any favors. Perhaps a shift to more fruitful, productive plants (instead of just good ole Kentucky Bluegrass!) could be a better option for your space. Why not save yourself some work, money, and time while also cultivating a bountiful back yard for you and animals alike? A win-win-win!
“...But where do I start?!”
We spend a lot of time talking to new growers who are eager to put roots in the ground, but are unsure where to begin their horticultural journey. People are admirably excited to get their hands dirty, but they are often intimidated by all the potential options. These packages (similar to our apple packages on page 5) are designed to help people who are starting out, aren’t quite sure what direction they want to go in, or are overwhelmed by a long list of plant varieties. All varieties in these packages are “Our Pick”, meaning we will choose them for you (notes on what you hope to use the fruit for can be helpful!). We have put together three packages ranging in size depending on what you're looking for.
