Apple Blossoms and Blueberry Bushes!

I actually have some apple orchard related news to blog about today! I know...what a surprise!


First...as you can see from the first two pictures below...the apple trees are budded out and blossoms are thinking about showing their beautiful petals.

I'm a little nervous about the blossoms wanting to show themselves already...we've been known to get frost in early May before...if that happens :( But, as I always say to everyone else...nothing we can do about it...


We also recieved 50 blueberry bushes in the mail today. We decided to plant them right away...rain is forecasted for the next few days so we thought we might as well get it done.


Frank and I dug the holes while Diane put the bushes in. (Oh, and I took the pictures!)



Cedi helped haul the bushes from the van for Grandpa to plant. She really likes it on the farm. I'm thinking that Cedi is going to be our planter/grower girl and Capri is going to be our animal lover...we'll see how my predictions turn out!



Have I said before that I am so lucky that I have great kids! It was not the nicest of days out...it was windy and chilly but the girls lasted pretty much the whole time. I think we had about 8 plants left to put in and Capri decided she really needed a nap. By the time I got her in and settled and the food in the oven, the planting was done. Cedi was ready to come in at that point. Between the sandbox and playing in the truck...as long as they're outside, my kids are happy.

Sounds like a wonderful day. Your family sounds wonderfully close and I believe it is not luck that you have great kids but your love & parenting. Happy growing season, looking forward to more updates.

I think our frost is over here in kansas,you never know. I have a big apple tree that just got done blooming and apples should start forming here soon.I give apples to the neighborhood and to friends. I also have a long blackberry bush that I also give to a lady that sells jelly and jams at the farmers market.
