Started planting trees
Early start this year. Fruit tree pruning is mostly done. With the nice weather of late, I was able to transplant a few apple trees from my nursery to the field last weekend. I also pulled out a clump of dogwoods that had been heeled into the garden for the last 2 years and got them planted out. I still got another clump of dogwoods and a few spruce to move. I have a few more apple trees to get out of the nursery to make room. I bought a few grafted apple trees from a few places and the first should be here in a couple weeks. Do some some bench grafting of more apple trees. Then plan seedlings from MDC and PGC Howard and a few bigger spruce from the conservation district.
I had hoped to take it easier this spring and spend more time with the chainsaw...Hopefully I didn't order anything else that I forgot about.
