Espalier Apple Tree

Crappy Tire was selling loose root Espalier Apple trees with 6 varieties for only $29.95. And it even has Gravenstein my favourite. Quelle deal. Perhaps they're not so crappy after all. So, we bought one and put it smack dab in the middle of our strawberry patch.

It's not a good picture, sorry. There's no good way to take a picture and see all of it really well. Unfortunately, the trellis I made isn't quite wide enough for the bottom branches, so I might have to fix that later.

The sad part is, no apples this year. It will be hard to trim off the blossoms in favour of root growth.
