Apples On The Way?

I planted my first apple trees last April. They are still sweet little four-foot popsicles, but apparently they like where I planted them because they started budding a few weeks ago and are now in full bloom. It isn’t officially spring, but it is in Tucson – and the varieties I planted (Dorsett Golden and Anna) are early bloomers.

When I planted them last year, I figured it’d be four or five years before they’d get their feet in the ground and start producing apples, but who knows; they are covered in flowers, so maybe I’ll get some already.
