Apple Trees

By Uncle Hans

I never knew that apple trees aged.  I thought you planted a couple and were fixed for life.  Well, my two trees are 20 years old and the yield is starting to fade.  And these are Honey Crisp, which are addicting....................


apple1 here is the next generation.  The taller one in the back is from this spring, the shorter one in the foreground is from a couple years ago.  I think I have planted 5 over 3 years to get this far, the deer eat them in spite of the fence, and lack of rain/severe winters do the rest.  This year we have had  a milder winter and plenty of rain.  So it looks like they will make it.

Stay tuned................
