Just following up as promised. As our first snowfall of the season approaches, I can report that none of our apple trees produced fruit this year. Looks like as speculated the October snowfall last year which took so many of their limbs, killed 2 of them, and left the yard a wreck, also so damaged them that they produced no fruit. There was a spattering of blossoms, literally a handful of small apples that got no larger than golfballs, and that’s it. This from among at least 10 mature apple trees which last year produced a bountiful crop. Hopefully next year is better.
