Teeny tiny apple trees

on May 7, 2010

Wish I would have taken a pic of the 4 puny 1′ long wax covered sticks I brought home from the MOSES conference in February.  Since then the little grafted apples spent a month in the cool basement and then the garage.  Eventually they were planted with some heavy-duty rabbit and vole protection.  Now three are leafing out nicely.  They’re spending this year in the nursery where I can keep a close eye on them, watching for signs of fire blight (we had a blighted apple tree in our yard) and mammal damage.   Next year the orchard should be ready and they’ll be moved to their permanent location.
