It has been quiet in apple land these past few months, but the trees are quite alive and if you travel to any orchard you ‘ll see baby fruits plumping up on the branches.
Down on the Massachusetts coast in April, I stopped at Dartmouth Orchards and saw these beauties just beginning to flower.
A few weeks later, we visited Old Sturbridge Village, which has an amazing collection of hundreds of heirloom apple trees. Look how much farther they had come.
Meanwhile, I have planted my very own and first-ever apple tree in our yard and I’ll post about that next time.
