The Lazarus AppleSeptember 4, 2019
WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
I am constantly amazed at how difficult it can be to plant and establish a young apple tree and yet, once established, how tough these trees can be. I snapped a photo of this apple that just refused to quit near Monticello, Sullivan County on an old farm. The tree snapped over, but re-rooted itself and resurrected towards the sun. It’s Lazarus in apple garb.
May the forest be with you,
