Wow, 2016 was yet another bad year for the orchards. This was mainly due to the fact that I was exceptionally busy finishing my PhD. Now, that is over, so hopefully fruit will be back again in 2017. I’ve started pruning a little. I hope to replant some trees this spring. I’m also hoping to volunteer some trees and time to the Knoxville Botanical Gardens. What I really hope is that I can get some trees from Kazakhstan , which are a totally different species of apple, along with some other trees on Geneva Rootstocks for the Gardens.
