Fruit tree inventory

This week I bedded down the apple and pear trees for the winter by doing a little pruning, putting on a new layer of mulch and spraying the trees with Fung oil. The trees seem to be doing OK with healthy looking branches.

On April 11 I told you about the two Early Richmond cherry trees I had planted. I’m republishing the photo here. I’m sad to report that one of the trees didn’t make it. If you look at the photo, you will see that the tree on the left looks the healthiest. Looks can be deceiving. That’s the tree that withered and died.

I’ll plant another cherry by April 11 of next year. Hope springs eternal in the heart of man.
