I spied this peach tree in one of my chicken yards this summer. It was what is called a volunteer which means it just grow there up from a seed from another peach tree. I needed to transplant it to a better spot.
I was going into the chicken area to get some poo for the peach tree. They thought it was time to get into the front yard but it wasn’t and I didn’t give in. Too early into the front yard and they get into mischief like poo on the front porch.
I got some more soft soil together for the tree then got side tracked and walked over to my neighbors to check out a phone thing I said I’d do for her. She needs some new phone line run so she can get her router in the right place so she can use it around the house and the yard.
I sat down in the yard until the sun went behind the hill to my west and thought I better get that tree planted.
I’ll have to get some kind of wire fence around it’s base before I let the chickens back in this spot. They won’t eat the tree but they dig up the roots just scratching around looking for bugs.
By now it was time to let the chickens into the front yard for an hour or so.
I did some more chair hopping and checked things out around the chicken pens as there’s always little things to do there, like check water, collect eggs, only four today.
At dark I went in the house.
