Thoughts and pictures of my wanderings through the Allegheny Mountains hunting grouse and woodcock with my Ryman-type English Setters during the fall and winter months, fishing for smallmouth bass in local streams and rivers during the summer months and wandering over my 66 acres of heaven year round.

Apple tree pics in the Back40
Some of my young apple trees in the Back40.
This is an Ashmeade Kernel apple tree planted in 2001. It's an English variety known as a superb eating apple.
This a Purdy Apple tree. Found growing wild in the Adirondack Mountains, it's a late season cooking apple.
This pic shows a limb graft growing nicely.
This pic show a graft with the tape off healing nicely. The brown "blob" is toilet bowl wax used to keep the graft from drying out until it's healed.
