|The Honeycrisp apple tree we planted last year is blooming!|
|The unused potato bins provide a place with ready made stakes for the container trees.|
Then we started digging. And digging. And digging. And it was hotter than Hades. The two new apple trees (a Braeburn and a Honeycrisp, both grafted on M-7 stock) went back in the holes that the others came out of. By the way, you can read about different rootstocks here.

Next up was getting the tomato and peppers in the newly-topped-off raised beds. So far, we have 2 Early Girl hybrids, 2 Cherokee Purples, 4 Romas and 3 red peppers. I need to go pick up some more Romas, as that's not nearly enough plants to make a good amount of sauce. And we still have the other bed to plant our squash, green beans, watermelon, etc.
