Remember a couple of years ago we started growing apple trees from seed?
FLASH BACK: this is how they looked in February 2014
Well, we’ve kept on with it, sprouting seed after seed, growing seedling after seedling, and we have quite a few in different sized pots around the garden. Some of them didn’t make it, sadly, but that’s the way it goes, and we just keep on going. (I say ‘we’ but really it’s Miranda who does all the work. I help with watering 😉 )
If you look over here you will see what our oldest ones looked like a year ago – nice strong, woody stems, but still tiny.
But now the tallest one is about four feet tall! I’ve photographed it next to a garden chair to give you some idea of scale:
How fantastic is that?!!!
It seems like no time since we sprouted those first seeds.
We have planted a few in the wild and intend to keep doing that, inconspicuously near public footpaths, in the hope of providing free food for the future, but most of them are still in pots for now.
We love our little trees 😀
