Apple Tree: Winter Growth!

I have one young, but mighty 3-in-1 apple tree. Last year, one branch produced around 18 full-sized apples, as my green plastic garden tape can attest. Wow! They were delicious, truly.

During the winter, this same branch is now dotted with new leaves which, hopefully, signals a bountiful new season of fruits.

I took this photo minutes ago and am pleased to report that other branches are likewise showing this same new leaf growth.

Relatively modest successes such as this encourage me to further improve my efforts in gardening in general, and likely, to add more fruit trees to my garden in the future.

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE:  Apple seeds are highly toxic if ingested. More information on toxic plants can be found here:
