Spring is here. So last weekend I did some googling to see how I should trim my apple trees. After some clipping and chopping I think my orchard is ready for the summer. (All three small trees).

While I was at it, I took care of my vineyard (two vines).

Last year one of my grapevines did really well. (It produced about four bunches of grapes.) One Saturday afternoon I picked a sample to see if they were ready. Ellen and I both agreed that they needed a few more days. A couple more days passed and I checked again. Every single grape was gone. Critters...

I don't mind sharing, but hopefully this fall I'll be like this guy with some apples to inspect.
