Counting my apples before they hatch
I'm trying really, really
hard not to get my hopes up about non-berry fruit this year...and
failing miserably. The deal is --- we still have 2.5 weeks until our
frost-free date, so anything could happen.
Our apple flowers seem to
pretty reliably turn into fruits if they're not nipped, but I'm having
to rein in my excitement a bit over our grape vines. The seedless
varieties we like to eat are very sensitive to fungal diseases, so I
planted a few vines right up against the sunniest sides of the trailer
a few years ago in hopes of creating a dry microclimate they can enjoy.
This is the first year I've seen bloom buds on those trailer-side
vines, so just maybe this year we'll actually get grapes. Fingers
