    The girl at Menards called her manager to make sure pepper mixed with paint would not explode........I was beyond entertained.

    Looks like a bumper crop all around this year.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Pruned heavy last winter. Didnt get it this winter again. UNREAL how many new shoots it sent out. This tree is at the pinnacle of its existence in my backyard. [​IMG]

    I planted two Johnathan’s this evening after work to add to the three I planted in this plot last year. Sprinkled a fair amount of the fungus spore stuff around them to hopefully set back the jap beetles. Maybe i’ll get a couple more this weekend.

    Is the goal of pruning to get the tree to grow out rather than up?
    Sorry im ignorant and havent kept up in the thread

    No. Branches growing straight up break and can’t support weight well. & don’t get sunlight spread out well. Branches with good angles can support weight of fruit.[​IMG]

    The apples still pollinated at least a portion after the ice.

    Some pics of finished product. Trees that are planted close together will be moved in a few years.

    Already ordering more for 2021. :) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Unless it has damage, I would wait until late winter.
