Last Lady Williams

I was cutting scionwood last weekend to start filling orders, and came upon the Lady Williams tree with the last of last season’s apples on it.  They were puny, but still tasted fresh and good.  I’m afraid that’s it until Dorsett Golden puts out the first early apples in late May; three months of apple drought.  But there’s plenty to keep me busy until then, starting with grafting over a thousand trees to kick the season off.

  1. wow, can’t imagine picking a decent apple in February, what a different world from the snowy north. Good luck with all the grafting!

  2. Thanks Damo; I’ll have to have my apple trees read the article, because obviously someone forgot to tell them they’re not supposed to be fruiting.
