Apple Tree Planting 2012

 

Apple Tree Planting, April 2012

Today was another great milestone on the Sweetser Farm. We planted another six varieties of apples in the orchard, raising our total to 46 varieties. When we plant 4 more varieties from FEDCO tree company, we’ll boast 50 varieties of fresh apples. Here is Eben (6th generation), Greg (5th generation) and Dick (4th genertation) in the field on a 70 degree April day. Each of the 33 trees planted today were carefully set in the ground under Connie’s Sweetser eagle eye to insure that the rows were straight.  The hard word of running an orchard seems to result in healthy family members.
