I Built an Orchard

  • Опубліковано 27 лис 2023
  • We have HUGE NEWS! Click here: bit.ly/tangentswithtylerandtodd for our BRAND NEW WEEKLY SHOW, Tangents with Tyler and Todd, airing EVERY Wednesday!
    We’ve wanted to plant an orchard on our homestead for YEARS to grow our own food…today is finally the day! Go to our sponsor betterhelp.com/tylertodd for 10% off your first month of therapy!
    The idea to build a shipping container home was definitely one of the wildest ones we've had and if you've been joining our weekly videos for any amount of time you know that's saying something. Without question, it's a project that is much more difficult than we thought it would be but we're having fun along the way and that's what counts. Join us every Sunday as we continue to create off the grid homestead vlogs, sharing our adventures as we build our own alternative lifestyle of living off the land and building a home out of shipping containers!
    Join us on Patreon where we have over 30 never before seen episodes AND 50+ videos...hours and hours of entertainment to binge watch!

    How did we get here?
    After a year of full time travel living the van life, we had to adapt when the world changed. To keep busy we’ve converted our tiny house on wheels into a fully functioning off grid home that has everything we need. Realizing that none of us know how long this new normal will stick around, we made the decision that building a home here was the best decision we could make. We've spent the last year doing EVERYTHING involved with coordinating and planning the build ourselves as well as setting up this off grid property to be able to provide us with the the food we'll need in the future. That led us to needing a place to live while we realized our dream of building a shipping container home. After lots of searching we finally discovered Geodesic Dome's and it was the perfect fit for us while we took our time with the container home.

    An incredible amount of work but dreaming about how tasty all the apple pies, crisps, and cherry tarts are going to be was enough to keep us going...it's been a really enjoyable few weeks focusing on the projects that we're really wanting to work on. Todd has been talking about doing this for YEARS and I can't believe we finally have our very own orchard!!! P.S. Next week we're taking a little trip to meet up with a few special guests...any guesses 👀

      Emaon and Bec or the van wives are my guesses. Ohh I also want to point out how much I love your playlists in the background and that you put them up on your website. When I first started watching you guys a little over three years ago you had a song on your playlist I absolutely adored. Brand New Day by Asher the only reason I was able to find it was from the list you create on your website. Thank you so much I play it just about every morning before I go to work it really gets my day going.

    So excited for you guys! Some orchard tips -- (I'm sure you guys probably already did a mountain of research but just in case!): Make sure to prune your fruit trees in late February or March every year! It's important to get fruit trees branching the right way while they're still young, and once they are older, the pruning will help increase fruit size. The best tree form for fruit trees is short, wide, open topped trees. It's important for maximizing light penetration into the tree canopy, and thus, your fruit harvest as well. At the same time, keeping those trees low will also make it much easier to pick all your fruit during harvest! Picking all the fruit as soon as possible will also boost your harvest for the following season (strange I know. It has to do with the hormones released back into the tree buds by developed fruit seeds which signal to the tree that it successfully reproduced and won't need to reproduce, aka create fruit, as much next year). Anyways, hope this helps :)

    Having planted over 30 trees these past few years, I've learned one thing: you have to water new transplants in. The first couple of weeks, it's watering every day. Because you're doing a fall planting, you might seek some advice for frequency and amount of water. I've had great success with fall plantings (cedar and spruce trees), and consistent watering those first two weeks was key to my success. Best wishes to you both as you anticipate fruit gathering in your future.

      So, we planted a 6 gallon cherry blossom last season, did all that watering daily, and it lost one branch this season but seems rather unhappy. No blossoms but we kept the leaves alive. Any suggestion? I swear, upstate NY, near the finger lakes too, has the worst soil. At least our home's acreage. Every hydrangea we tried died. We do, however, have some nice volunteer white birch doing nicely.

      Long, slow waterings versus lots of short frequent waterings will promote strong, healthy root development.

    Guys! You are just a step away from evolving this awesome orchard start into an actual #FoodForest. So exciting! I know you enjoy your research as much as the physical projects, so I'd suggest some winter-reading to feed your knowledge base and inspire more. Here are a few books to add to your library:
    "Farming the Woods : An Integrated Permaculture Approach to Growing Food and Medicinals in Temperate Forests"
    Ken Mudge; Steve Gabriel; John Munsell
    "Edible Forest Gardens" (Vols 1 and 2)

    If you have deer, I would recommend a protective fence around each of your young trees. It's not permanent, just a year or two. 6' field fencing (2x4 rectangles) with 1 T-post to anchor it to, 3'-4' diameter circle of fencing is small enough they can't jump in!
    I've done this with my orchards & not lost a tree yet.
    Once the trees are larger, some predation of lower branches wont be too harmful to them, and the protective fencing won't be necessary.
    As always wishing you lads success.

    Important abt Woodchips! Do not put the chips right against the bark of trees, rake away from the tree at least a foot away around, otherwise the chips will rot the new bark at the bottom of the tree and create "girdeling affect" and then the tree will die, because it won't be able to send water and nutrients up to the tree because the tree bark will be broken.❤❤❤ I can't wait to see all the deer on your property!!! May want to do a nice fence around❤

    I live in fruit orchard country (rural Washington state) and have never seen wood chips, only grass or dirt. But our orchards are thousands of acres, so maybe that's why. Your orchard will be beautiful, especially when the trees have their first bloom. Also--be careful when you light that huge pile of brush. You could scorch your tender new trees.

  • Marta Alexander
    Marta Alexander 2 місяці тому +3

    The wood chips was an excellent suggestion for so many reasons. You can also add fresh chips year after year or every 2-3 years. Builds nutrition into the soil, looks attractive and walking on it is nice and cushioneeee. lol You guys are fun to watch and building such a nice place for yourselves.
    Keeping a garden journal is great and you can add a drawing of hte trees with their names as things happen to markers but your garden journal is a living journal of your planting life and cycles etc that work in your environment.

    Not all fruit trees need a different pollinator. Some trees, like cherries are self pollinating. You should strip most of the fruit on their first year as it stresses the tree if they have too much fruit and the weight of the fruit can break the branches as they are still slim and need to get stronger. Small fruit like cherries are ok though.

      I was going to say this too, That pile would make great wood chips for everywhere on their land - paths, new gardens, etc. Chipping that pile would be a much better (and safer?) use of found material. Why waste is with a risky bigger burn?

    You guys really step things up a notch when you do a project! Once the trees get established, it will be a wonderful orchard! The wood chips most definitely the best choice. Grass would be pretty, but very labor intensive trying to keep it looking that way.

    Just a tip to pass along. Make sure you have fine mesh guards (such as hardware cloth) around the bottom portions of the trees. This winter, when you have lots of snow, mice will be tunneling through that snow but will not be able to get to your tree trucks. Because that bark is very tender right now and very tasty to them. Also have it extend a few inches above the snow line, so that rabbits also don’t nibble on your trees. Your Orchard is looking absolutely lovely with those hemlock chips!

    • SuperVlerik
      SuperVlerik 2 місяці тому

      When I lived in Vermont, I ran into the same issues: mice and voles tunneling under the snow and in Spring so many trees were ringed they never grew back.
      My solution was cheaper and lazier than the wire mesh guards: Bag Balm, the ubiquitous fix-all every country dweller keeps on hand (along with Duct Tape). Bag Balm is smelly, natural, water proof, and at least in New England, easily found.
      In the autumn, I smeared the tree trunks with Bag Balm extending from soil line upwards about 18". Any left on my hands worked in well as a hand cream. Seriously, best applicator is an un-gloved hand.
      No damage after that. I mean, what rodent would want a mouthful of that?

    WOW! Absolutely gorgeous orchard. I was hoping you would plant a Honey Crisp apple, my favorite. What a find with Mel, so lucky to have such great “helper”. Thank you so for such a fun entertaining Sunday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    This is great. My mouth is watering thinking of all the fruit you will have from those trees. BTW, I once put down wood chips in my yard. It didn’t last because the cats in the area (I live in the city) used it in place of their kitty litter! You only have one cat, and you have plenty of soil she can dig in, so you probably won’t have the same problem. Something to think about, though.

    Oh that defined area really adds to the look of your "compound". It looks so neat and clean, and just think in a few years when you have mature, producing trees in there. Great job!

    Don't forget to water for a long time for the first while. You usually have to water immediately after planting---roses, fruit trees, vegetables...they all need watering right after planting. It's gonna be beautiful to see them in flower!

    T&T, I've told you both that every episode I watch, I have a smile on my face throughout. That is a magical thing that you both do. The orchard transformation is absolutely beautiful! By the way, Todd has a new nickname now "Wild Fern". Love you both and your trio too! 😁❤

    Great looking orchard love the signature that you created for each tree. The only thing l would advise is to protect the bark on the young trees from deer eating the bark is tree tape to protect them until they mature. As long as your in the pie making business now I’ll take a cherry one in a few years.

    Don't mulch to the base of the trees! This is a common mistake. Leave several inches of bare soil so the trunk is dry. Mulching right against the tree encourages rot, fungus, insects, and weakens the bark.
