been curious lately if any of you guys grow fruit on your property 'organically' but i dunno which forum i should ask in. Apples, pears, cherries, persimmons.....whatever. I'm curious about who has what and what problems , as in bug/disease problems in different areas of the country . I have some potted fruit trees and want to add them to my yard but i've been trying to keep everything growing organically on my property. From everything i've read, fruit and vegetables are 2 diferent things when it comes to growing organically. All the "old timers'' around here are all about spraying everything into oblivion. So, i havent picked up much from people locally.
I'm looking to share some ideas about fruit trees. I'm currently reading "The Apple Grower" by Michael Phillips, which is outstanding! (if you have read this far) and after buying a few other books over the last few years , i've started to realize how complex fruit can be.
What say you ?!
