A Break in the Weather

With a nice warm wave of weather here I've started pruning and cutting scion from my apple trees.

Slow work with my arthritic knees but these young trees need to be pruned into an acceptable form.  Deciding which limbs will be allowed to grow into main fruit bearing limbs and which limbs need to be pruned.  Bluebirds are keeping me company but refuse to pose for pictures. :)
Scion, packed up and ready to mail to other "apple addicts" across the country.  Swapping scion gets these old heirloom varieties spread out across the country.

Do you breed your own setters?

No. My last two setters came from Firelight Kennels.
