Apple Orchard

Some random photos of the Apple Orchard after it has been mowed. The photos really don’t show how great it looks, almost like a park. As you can see though, many of the trees are not blooming this year, and I have no idea why. I would love to trim a few of them (they all need it), but it’s one hell of a lot of work, and I just don’t know how long I’ll be here. 🙁

I Don’t Get It…

I don’t get it, most the apple trees that should be blossoming don’t have any blossoms, maybe a couple is all. The leaves all look very healthy, but no blossoms are even starting, nothing. Now the cherry and pear trees are doing very well and blossoming. A couple of the old scraggly apple trees have blossoms, but that’s it.

Big Land Clearing Done

Mowing for the day, and hopefully for a few days. I did some pretty extensive clearing of weeds around the orchard today, can get to just about all the apple trees without getting into tall weedy tick land. The only areas I didn’t get cleaned/cleared up is where there are tree limbs and the land is just too rough. What paths that a left are all twice as wide as they were, so that makes it nicer walking. Well that’s done, now to see if I bother to keep it up.
The apple trees themselves are just about to burst into bloom, any day now. The cherry and pear are starting to blossom now.
I took some photos with my phone as I was mowing and after I was done.
