Without us noticing our apple and pear trees have grown lots of tiny fruit and we’re pretty excited about it. We planted the two apple trees in the middle of the front lawn so things had the potential to go spectacularly badly if they died but being the eternal optimists we are we didn’t consider that option.
The great thing about this blog is I can chart the tree’s journey. We planted them in May 2012 and I see – rather shockingly – it’s been almost a whole year that I’ve been “meaning to dig around the other apple tree.” Better do that after Christmas.
This time last year we had only one apple and then it died – so all this fruit is super exciting. Any gardening advice for this stage would be most welcome.
