Anyone got any advice?
I got an apple tree that for the first time in 15 years, its got a decent crop of apples. I realize I should have "thinned" the fruit, but I was so excited/dumbfounded that I just watched it grow. It is so loaded with apples, I figgered it would probably snap some limbs but this?
Its fallen over, popped up out of the ground. I'm trying to use some come-alongs to jack it back up and hope it will live long enuff for the apples to ripen but......got my doubts, but I'm giving it the big try.........Dell, with the purple thumb, who thinks that fruit trees should grow in the ground
BTW......this spring I was at the local garden nursery, complaining about how all my fruit trees always blossemed but very seldom had fruit. They told me that all the local bees had probably died off and I needed some new ones. They sold me some "Mason Bees" in little cardboard tubes. I thought they were mud daubbers. Must of worked.
