Planting the Apple and Peach Trees

Here are the 3 trees that arrived in the mail.

Digging in the middle of the night...our neighbors may think we are nuts.

Our "lovely" rock hard clay dirt.

After we ammended the soil with lots of compost, sand and peat moss, we finally planted the trees. The 2 apple trees (Beni Shogun Fuji and Akane) are planted in zone "I" and the Peach tree is in zone "G"
Thank you and Great job Tim!
