Fruit Trees

Apple trees that have been spring pruned.Finally, the last of the fruit trees in the garden have been pruned, and not a moment too soon. Some of the trees have buds that are starting to swell.

A few weeks of warm weather will force the buds to spring out of hibernation (dormancy) and begin flowering.

It is common to see a few blooms around Easter time, but this year may be delayed a week or more since the ground has not warmed up yet.

It is a waiting game for us to see when the first blooms will appear. In the meantime, I will be snacking on dried apples, prunes and pears while I dream about the abundance of fresh tree fruit that is only a few months away.
