Apple Trees

After a long tough winter, including abuse from the local deer population, our new apple trees are beginning to sprout some new buds!


  1. Nice photo, Mr. Brown.

    Our apple trees hail from the days of Johnny, I suspect, and are a bit long in the bark and short in the apple department. How long does it take to start a new set?

  2. Good question. These were put in last year by the folks who helped us with landscaping (Treestone). That shot was from an Empire tree. The other pair (Cortlands) are a bit behind. All the trees were pretty good sized when they put them in; no idea yet whether we'll see any "fruit" this year.
