The Apple Trees Have Broken Dormancy

"Liberty" Apple Tree

Walking around the property this past weekend, I decided to head over to my "Apple Orchard" and have look at my three apple trees. It has been a while since I had last visited them, and I was wondering how they were faring. I was very pleased to discover that my little "Liberty" tree has broken dormancy and is starting to leaf out. My other two trees, the "Honey Crisp" and my newly planted "Spartan" have yet to leaf out. But the buds on both of those trees are swelling and it shouldn't be be long before they too have some delicate new green leaves. Spring might be late this year, but it is coming!
