So far we have planted the following. Three figs, all coming in at different times. Early one San Pedro went into a container this morning to constrict its roots, then comes the Brown Turkey then comes the Adriatic.
Christabel sourced a King David apple for us, originated from Nelson maybe and grafted by Mark Christianson of Wanganui. We also have in the healthy one, Monte's Surprise bought from Stewart Dixon
Then the soft fruit two thornless blackberries, one boysenberry.
We have four feijoas ready to plant. One is from the local Bell Street Watson's gardens without a name, one is Wiki Tu, late and large. Then there are Unique and Apollo. Then we will plant a lemonade and a grapefruit and finally a damson plum which Wendy kindly gave us. Next winter a Hawera plum.

It was quick and painless. Three days and it is up. Then Malcolm dug the trench for the power line and the electrician connected us up. Next the plumber has to instal the water tank and dig a soak hole.
We are now transferring stuff from the carpetted area in the back to the garage and have already used the smooth concrete floor to make bokashi from sawdust, bran and 2% EM and 2% molasses.
