is hopefully what we'll be eating this fall.
The "supposed to be" dwarf grafted apple tree is blooming.
They are the sweetest smelling and beautiful flowers.
This is by far the most blooms I've ever seen on it. I've been reading that the cold winter we had was good for the fruit trees, and would help them to set more fruit.
There are 5 varieties grafted on here. Unfortunately all the tags have fallen off over time and I can only remember one of the branches, Gala. I think I remember this one because it was the first branch to produce fruit. Maybe some apple aficionados will be able to help identify the apples when they are ripe.
The varieties are:
and an unknown.
Now I just hope that the apple maggots don't find them. I'm going to see what type of traps I can find, I want to keep my yard pesticide free.
Until then I get to look out my kitchen window at these pretty flowers.
