A beautiful day for planting apples!

Another five apple trees found a happy home this morning…

Akane (spur-bearing Japanese variety bred from Jonathan and Worcester Pearmain)

Calville blanc d’Hiver (old French cooker)

Granny Smith (is there a more famous Aussie out in the wide world?)

Kingston Black (renowned for dry cider making)

Summer Strawberry (rare old aussie variety, probably from South Australia)

They left the farm late morning so by now some of them will already be in the ground – a celebration planting as new owners take possession (today) of 20 acres at Berringa.   As these trees grow in the years to come, they will be a reminder of this beautiful Spring day.  May many happy memories be created on that property from this day forward!  🙂
