With the last big rain and hot days everything has noticeably grown:



I posted this same picture in the " What blooming?" thread but felt it also belonged here:

they look great maggie!  i have a question.  your previous post mentioned you will leave them in the barrel for a couple of years.  once you do that will they move to that new section you just cleaned up and mowed?  or you mentioned over by the pond? 

do you move the shorter cuts that you planted into the bigger barrels once the trees move out?  or do they all go out at once?

post something!  c'mon...you know ya wanna...  :)

Thanks Chips! These trees IF they are moved to growing in the ground will be here by the pond not in the OLD Orchard.The turkey, deer and the bear still rule that area.
If our timing is good we get first picking if not we get what they cannot reach.

Yes the small cutting will be move into bigger pots as soon as they have a sufficient root system.
