I’ve now finished planting all the apple trees in the two orchards that frame the entrance to Port Rowan.
Faster than you could say Ickity Ackity Oop I planted the final two dozen trees in the front orchard – seen below:
As mentioned previously, I decided to use half as many trees as originally planned. I left every second row free of trees, adding brighter green ground foam in these rows to suggest grass and help disguise the stumps (which I simply left in place):
It’s not yet harvest season – although it’s close – so I won’t have ladders and workers everywhere. But adding a farmer checking on the progress of this year’s crop wouldn’t be out of place.
