~ Old Apple Trees ~

Back in early spring , DH and I had talked about cutting our ~ Old Apple Trees ~ down. I don't know how old they are , they were here when we bought our home. I've never got any apples off them , they've just been there and produced apples for the wildlife.Most of the time , a late frost kills most of the blooms and there aren't many apples anyway.

So we thought it might be a good idea to cut them down and plant some new ones. We never got around to cutting them and Well ...... it seems the ~ Old Apple Trees ~ didn't want to die , they're full of little green apples this year. I plan to can some apples , make applesauce and apple crisp ~ Yummy. Sometimes I guess it pays to procrastinate (LOL).

I also found a nice size volunteer peach tree blooming this Spring in the edge of the woods. It has a couple of peaches on it , but I don't think it will produce much in this area. I plan to move it in the Fall , it will be planted along the fence line of our property , with the blueberries and a pear tree I planted earlier this Spring.
I hope to produce most of our food within the next few years , seems Mother Earth is eager to help.

Hi Joyce Ann,
Wow, thats neat.Amazing how Mother Eather works huh?;o) We have pear trees but wildlife gets them before we do. My peach tree died this yr.
Hope it works out for you to grow your own food.
