A week or so ago, this photo shows the west fence where about a dozen
espaliered apple trees were wrapped in vines and thorns.
The fence row today:
For what it's worth, we've emancipated about ten trees thus far. My hands hurt from the thorns, in spite of good work gloves. I'm hopeful for our apple prospects.
We decided to put a burn barrel inside the orchard for getting rid of debris. There is so much debris! Branches and vines to kingdom come!
