In between all the work in the house the days are getting longer and the weather is getting nicer. Triggered by a friends post on Facebook, I contacted Carool to teach me online how to prune the old neglected apple trees in the garden.
We started with on to get the basics down. I took pictures, send them to him and he marked which branches to take out.
As I have a electrical chain saw I thought it would be handy to also have a power plug on the outside of the house, so I adjusted the light I installed in the fall.
While waiting on feed back for the first tree, Mo and I decided to take out the two trees just on front of the garage. The had hardly any apples, stand to close to the building and don’t add to much to the garden. Once they where cut, it looked so much better already.
And of course the nice thing about pruning is, you have something to burn as well. This early in the year it is not so much a problem.
