A Lesson in Gardening

Rule 6: Remember to remove the string that you tied onto the tree to keep it stable when it was a sappling. Don't leave it there for an extra 4 years!

The string on the apple tree

You can see in the middle how the trunk has been stunted by the string. The trunk by the ground it over twice as big. I had wondered why the apple tree had developed so many branches so low.

You can just make out BigE's hand as he helped me cut the string out. Don't worry those are his safety play dough scissors.
