The Many Apple Trees at My Farm

This season's apple trees have been producing tons and tons of fruit.

We won't be picking apples for several more weeks, but here at my Bedford, New York farm, the trees are just brimming with juicy, delicious apples. I have many apple trees here - the large ones were on the property when I bought it, and are believed to be at least 60-years old. I also have espaliered apple trees that I planted soon after I moved to the area. An espalier is a fruit tree or ornamental shrub whose branches are trained to grow on a wall, lattice or framework of stakes.

As you may recall, we had very few apples last year because of a late season frost - but this season is excellent! Enjoy these photos.
