One of the apples trees that were planted by the previous owners of our property did not make it through the winter. When we moved the chickens out of the orchard Alan was able to cut up the tree and dig up the trunk. He said the roots were very mushy and limp.
Now I have room for more fruit trees.
First though, we need to level out all the holes the chickens dug.
Now I just have to figure out what else I want to plant in the orchard.
