It is well into spring time here in Louisiana with daytime highs in the upper 70's most days for the last month or so. Due to losses of a number of fruit trees around the yard over the last few years, I decided this was a good year to go through, replant and expand the inventory of edibles around the yard. I started about 6 weeks ago, and have planted 3 new Satsuma trees to go along with the 3 existing ones, the new ones are Armstrong Early, St Ann and Louisiana Early (the existing ones are all Owari's although one is a bit stunted in growth and does not produce much fruit). I also added a Myers Lemon (which is risky outdoors in the climate here, although they do survive well about 50 miles south of here), and I am about to plant a Cara Cara orange tree (which is between the Myers and the Satsumas for cold hardiness). Additionally I planted 2 fig trees, an LSU purple, and an LSU Gold, to go along with the 2 unknown variety of figs I already have, and 2 new peach trees to replace ones that needed to be removed (trunks were splitting and rotting), a Harvester and a La Feliciana. In addition to all this I have planted a number of thornless blackberry plants in 4 varieties, Osage, Ouachita, Prime-Ark Traveler, and Sweetie Pie, on top of all that there were also couple of new blueberry bushes.
