In the video frame we have two peach trees and an apple planted within a 8′ diameter circle. We also have two plums that we planted just this year that we are also starting to incorporate into our graywater system. They’re not huge trees but they might at least give you an idea of the fruit yield you might be able to get with the all-to-often wasted resource you might know as ‘graywater’. Whether you’re in a dry or wet area, graywater useage is a wonderful and smart addition to any gardening you might be doing. We primarily use it on fruit trees and landscape plants but graywater can also be used on many standard garden veggies too. Hopefully this will give you an idea of how you might be able to use graywater successfully in your garden to! Thanks for watching:) Video Rating: / 5

    I would love to see a fruit tree update

    How exactly are you using graywater for this? Do you have a system that runs it from the house out to this area of the garden? I'm just wondering if you have or if you can show the setup for that? Thanks!

    Just wanted to know what the average low and high temperatures are in your area, maybe I can grow some peaches here in the Caribbean too. It's really dry desert type climate, Thanks.

    Fruits of your labour, are always the sweetest. The satisfaction of caring and seeing your own fruit and vegetables grow and florish is simply priceless. Loved the end with your family. Well done!

    Doesn't it get cold in the desert. Wouldn't it kill those trees?!

    What variety are these?

    Nothing better than fresh fruit grown in your own backyard. Using grey water is a really popular way to water your garden where I am from in Australia.

    Thanks Jessica… the end is my favorite too:)  PS – I'm still working on the 'helping on the homestead' video with more clips of Marley and a mention of BBH!

    I love the idea of capturing rain water as an additional source of moisture for the garden. That will probably be an upcoming project. Thanks!
    P.S. The bit at the end of the video is my favorite. :)
