|the apple orchard|
This afternoon we planted the apple trees, on what one year ago was part of the peach orchard. All I have to say is thank goodness for the man who invented the post hole digger! That man is both a gentleman and scholar and saved me a whole lot of digging!
It's pretty wild that a little stick (literally a stick) grows into a big fruit producing machine with an awesomely long life span...these trees could outlive me!
So they're planted and now we wait....we wait about 5 years.....so don't hold your breath but it's still something I'm pretty excited about. I just think about how special it will be when I (finally) have my very first apple.
