We're very much hoping to get an apple this year. I'm prepared to do just about anything to make one of those trees grow fruit. If I have to lug poo around to all those trees every day I want an apple this year. Just one from all this work and time. We really don't want to wait for apples until we're dead, as per why we try to plant so many when we're "young". I have hope because we did get a cherry last year, it was beautiful until the birds ate it.
Our gardening plans are a lot smaller this year because we plan to build a house and being humans who work day jobs we can only do so much. A lot of the food we grew last year lasted all winter. We still have cans of beets and plenty of potatoes and one last carrot in the fridge. We plan to grow all these things again this year but that's pretty much it. So just the one apple would be pretty awesome as far as gardening prowess. Even a tiny one. A very tiny one would be fine. As long as the birds don't get it.
