Apple Trees

Last winter (2009) I planted two apple trees in my back yard. Houston is not know for growing apples, but I thought I'd give it a try. I planted an Anna and a Dorset.

This year they have bloomed and I have apples! Here's a series of pictures of their progress.

February 20th, blossoms just start to open.

March 4th, more blossoms.

March 25th, apples the size of marbles.

April 20th, they are the size of golf balls.

May 10th, don't the just look great!

June 2nd, almost there

June 2nd, notice the stocking on the center apple. It's my wife's experiment.

Now, if I can only keep the birds from discovering them! I'm looking forward to some delicious, fresh, organic apples, SOON.

Tomorrow, I'll show you the pictures I took of our black berries.
