Volunteer Lettuce and High Altitude Fruit Trees


In this video we are discussing leafy greens as volunteers from last year’s crop, as well as high altitude fruit trees.

Many people say that you cannot grow fruit trees at this altitude, but we have experienced that even with 4-7 feet of snow during the winter, and at an altitude of almost 8,800 feet, our fruit trees are growing great.

Lesson learned: Don’t take anything you hear for granted. Try it out yourself!
