|New apple trees, in the farm orchard with established|
apple, crabapple and pear trees.
Last spring we planted out five of John's first apple grafts (Enigma, Mantet, MN 1628, Wealthy and Sweet 16) and three more plums (LaCrescent and Hanska).
|Hazel and the new apple tree plantings.|
This winter John grafted 100 more trees, which we will plant out shortly into their nursery beds, and then be planted out to their permanent locations in 2016. Grafts expand the stock of varieties we currently have, as well as add to our list with Stark, Porter, Smokehouse, Christmas Pearmain, and Hooples Antique Gold.
Plan to expand your apple palate folks, we have a lot of good fruit coming down the pipeline!
