Remember, way back in February 2014, we planted some apple seeds?
and they grew (well some of them died, but some of them grew)
And we checked in on them in 2015 and again in 2016 and they just kept on growing!
So we planted them outside in the ground. We thought the chickens might like them for shade when they’re bigger, but while they’re still young we put some wood around them to keep the girls from scratching the earth off their roots. There’s four in here (I wonder if you’ll be able to spot them all), and two of them are taller than me! The 8 to 10 years wikihow said we’d have to wait for fruit seemed like a long time, but it’s been 3 years already and time’s just flying 😀
NB this is not my garden 🙂 but luckily we were able to plant them here. So, if you don’t have anywhere of your own to plant them, look for a suitable spot on public property where they won’t get hacked down by farm machinery and then everyone can enjoy them. Check out the Scottish Forest Gardener to see how he successfully plants trees on council property 🙂
Plant trees! You know it makes sense 😉
