The Apple Tree

Welcome to Maintenance Monday! When we bought our new home, last summer, one of the things we thought was neat to have was our own apple tree. Last fall, we picked apples, brought them back home with us, and made apple butter.

However, the tree was not in good shape. So, this past spring 
Chris cut back some of the twisted, dead, and broken branches. 
We wanted to be careful as to not cut back too much.

The front side of the tree looked, fairly, decent;
but, the back side was still in horrible shape.

So, last week, Chris cut out more of the larger, dead branches
and tied up some of the healthy, heavy branches.

We are hoping to have apples, next fall!

Thanks for visiting Our Family Inspired Home!
