My little Fuji apple tree next to my vegetable garden is in full bloom. Lots of pure white blossoms this year! I'm imagining lots of apples.
Maybe I should start collecting knee-hi's. Last year I used stockings to cover the apples to keep bugs and squirrels away. It worked great and I picked five delicious crispy red apples. It was easier than spraying the tree, at least with only five apples.
Its not that I'm counting my apples - just hoping.
