We have a Gala apple tree. It’s grows, espaliered on the side of our garage. It’s an excellent method for growing trees in small spaces, training them to grow on wires, like grapes.
However, this was a very bad year for apples. We had so much cold, rainy weather when the tree was blooming in the spring that most of the blossoms were blown off. We picked two, yes, two apples and the second one looked like this.
I was looking forward to canning apple sauce and making apple pies. We can only hope things will go better next spring!
