Well, I NEVER thought we could grow Apples in Texas!
But, look at what we have now! And it has only been barely two years since we moved here but we are now having an “almost” Apple Orchard. Almost because we planted quite a few trees but only one so far has bore fruits like crazy! See this?
That is still a tiny tree, as you can see. Its main trunk is as small as my 9-year-old daughter’s arm. The branches that have fruits in it bowed down because of the weight. It is so beautiful to look at but is worrisome when it storms because of the gusty winds that sometimes crush the tree. Thank God none of the fruits fell when it stormed the other night and the wind was at 55mph.
Anyway, hopefully the other trees will be like this by next Spring. They have fruits right now but not as attractive and as many as this one. For now, we are very grateful for this soon-to-be yield. God is good!
