Our Apple Trees.
Not the best picture but it's the only one I have right now. Introducing our first two trees ~ we've never had to buy trees before, in all our years of home ownership. Every house has always had a fairly nice, established garden. And now on just over 2 acres of land, we've got a million trees .... but no fruit trees. Lots of organic and wild berry bushes, but no other fruits. So we saved up and waited for a sale and came home one day with these 2 beauties. We're slightly nervous about being entrusted with the well being of these fruit bearers. But we'll do a our best. And they came with a long warranty (5 years if I recall correctly). We currently have 2 very round and starting to redden up MacIntosh apples sprouting. Fingers crossed that they continue to grow well and in time, we have crops over the years. For us, a new and fun project.
Do you now have or have you ever grown apple trees?
What kind and when did you get a good crop?
