Wind shelters for little transplanted trees

You might recall that I planted fruit trees in the wrong place on our chacra. I finally got around to transplanting them: pathetically poor root structure in the impermeable soil that turns from incredibly sticky mud in the winter to something resembling concrete in the summer.

I planted one each on the two piles left from the installation of the septic system, complete with wind protection with fencing and shade cloth I had on hand.

The only other shade cloth I had had stripes, so now we have this jaunty little display in our back yard. But this is by far the wettest year we’ve had here, and particularly bad for mold in houses and plants in the ground. Will they fare better in their new location?

We’ll see soon enough.
