Apple TreeNots

We think perhaps because none of the fruit trees were allowed to bear fruit last year, due to a late frost, they stored their goodies and packed a punch this year, because all are heavily laden with fruits. We propped some droopy looking peach tree branches but didn't perceive the apple trees were in any danger until half of one tree went down in a storm a week or two ago.

The other apple tree seemed to be faring well until today. Oopsie.

We still have half of one tree and a little under two-thirds of the other.

I'm glad we didn't lose all the fruit this year (she says in her best Pollyanna impersonation). ºÜº

So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. ~Luke 17:10

Bummer on the apple trees. Do you think the fallen limbs will continue to nourish & ripen the apples on them?? I sure don't know. I do know one thing, & that's who's the "apple of your eye"! ºÜº
