The Orchard

Like all the other old homes in the area, our place has an old apple orchard.

I am surprised our trees produce fruit since they have hollow cores. How many generations of the previous owners enjoyed apples from these trees I can only guess.

While I like apples, I want to expand our fruit options.

  1. I am so very fond of trees. What a delight it will be for you to watch them through the seasons, and finally take of their bounty. Also, to think of future generations, such a pleasant thought.
    Enjoy!
