You may think planting a fruit tree is as simple as digging a hole, dropping a seed in, and covering it, but there’s more to it than that.
Trees are a homesteader’s best friend. They provide shelter from the sun, wind, and rain. And they often have medicinal properties or produce food—or both.
Fruit trees are one of the highlights of any homestead, and it’s easy to see why: a mature fruit tree can produce lots of delicious fruit each spring.
Growing fruit trees in buckets or a similar container is an excellent way to cultivate your own fruit, even in small spaces. #homesteadsurvivalsite #fruittrees #containergardening #bucketgardening #gardeningtips
