We received two of the apple trees that we ordered! The Honey Crisp & Jonathon trees arrived on Saturday.
We discussed again the best place to plant them and set to it tonight. We have all this space between the house and the barn/shop that is just ‘yard’. We decided using some of this would be a great use of space.
My honey dug the holes and I gave him lots of moral support. LOL! And I got the compost and water.
We spaced them 20 feet off the driveway and 20 feet apart.
The next two will go 20 feet in from these.
I am so excited about this! I know this sounds corny, but this really felt like we were taking a step towards doing something for our future.
I can’t wait for the other two to get here. Then I just have to be patient for the next year or two until we get our own apples…
