three little apple trees....
all in a row! They're all in bloom and apples are starting to grow!
Except this little one, it fell off the tree during our last rain a few days ago. I realize that a good orchardist would remove all the blooms and fruit off of a new tree for the next few years to ensure strong root development, and also to ensure a future of higher yields, but that is very hard to do for me and my husband! And so, we are going to let the blooms stay, because they are quite lovely, and we will let the apples grow. Okay, okay, I promise that I'll cull most of the little apples after the blooms fade, but leave a few on to develop. Deal? Deal!
