You’ve already planted your vegetables, so why not add some delicious fruits to your garden? Lucky for you, the soil that grows fruits and vegetables require the same care and attention, so you’re really just adding extra plants!

If you’re more experienced, try growing trees! Apple and peach trees are the perfect size to fit in your backyard and are less susceptible to disease. However, they are susceptible to insects and other animals that may try to eat them and require to be sprayed and pruning.
