Apple Tree Trellis--SPRING UPDATE!

Last August we blogged about our Fuji apple tree trellis. Incorporating trellis systems into your edible garden is a great way to grow fruit trees with limited space. (You'll find some great resources in the previously mentioned blog entry.)

Despite the wonderful trellis and quality tree, last year's Fuji apple crop was a little disappointing. (We got one apple!) But as you experienced gardeners know, these things take time! Our fruit trees, after having a year a half in the ground are looking happier than ever and pushing out the blooms to prove it.

Below are some photos of what our apple tree looked like a couple days ago! Our crack team of gardeners continues to train the tree to the trellis. Doesn't it look great and look at all those blossoms! This harvest season we'll be able to look back at our one apple season with a chuckle!

I was just reading about this technique in a book. It's nice to see it in a photo.
