Apple trees – major trim Jan 2013

Last week, Mike began our first attempt to take care of the 25+ year old apple trees in our back yard.

Funny how our opinion of this tiny orchard has changed over the years!

Mike’s parents have been taking care of them before now – and honestly, I really didn’t like them – I saw them as old, ugly trees…

BUT NOW, lol – we have a new appreciation for the trees because of what their fruit can provide for our family, namely applesauce and the thought of our very own raw apple cider vinegar… (Until then, we hope to try some of Alander’s Acres’ ACV!) 🙂

So, herein begins our journey with these trees. If they survive this major trim, we’ll be on to the next step. No doubt, future posts will follow… 🙂
