Yesterday I pruned the 2 old apple trees in my yard. About 5 hours on a ladder or climbing into the trees. Got all scratched up, so today I am sore and covered in welts.

1 down 1 to go

All done

So glad it's done. I usually do it in January. Procrastinating this year, but spring is approaching fast. Plants are starting to bud out and bloom. Next door neighbor has already mowed twice.

Imp- my moss doesn't need mowing yet.

I won't go up that high no way...

Reminds of the time I had to prune back a realy realy old wild rose bush that had grown up to the tops of the trees.we had just moved here and it had proubly been growing for a long long time.
I left the wild grape vine alone its huge now growing all up in the tree right by the road.

Pruning hurts my brain as much as my body. all of those decisions! dippers, divers, and dead wood, dippers, divers ,and dead wood...and then ..augh, I cut off the perfect branch because I was on a roll.
It looks good. Perhaps you can rest up before the second one.

I hang onto the branches tightly.

If I were to ever fall, I could probably drop to the ground safely. The moss is a couple miles deep.

HaHa! I used to be picky about the cuts, it would take me 2 days. Now I just hack hack hack at the water sprouts.

Imp- I know about that zone. Cable line looks like a branch after hours staring into the winter sky, x2.
