    Thank you, Ron!
    Alhamdulillah, I can not fast due to health concerns, but I am very sensitive to heat, as has been demonstrated.
    Instead of coffee this morning, a nice, steamy cup of chicken broth.

    I read the pruning guide that came with them and while I'm a pretty smart person, it didn't make any sense to me.

    I'll see if I can find "apple tree pruning for dummies"

    Yes!

    It is really very simple for training them. I would look for a video on You Tube.

    I do not know why they make the things that come with the tree so hard to understand. Maybe it is a Two dimensional chart to describe a three dimensional tree?

    I think I got instructions for putting together an IKEA desk instead of how to prune the tree!

    Heaven forbid if I have to look on youtube for anything. Fifty video's later I try to remember what I started looking for. Love to just surf. [​IMG]

    As long as you're not wondering who you are at the end of it, you've done good!!

    I've been working pretty much non-stop all day and I am bushed. I still have a bunch more stuff I want to do; hopefully I'll get my second wind after some calories.

    This talk about trees got me motivated today. I bought an Alberta Peach tree today and will be planting it tomorrow.

    The tree did not come with a pruning guide though.....

    No peaches here, nope, not possible. But, actually it's ok. I'm alergic.. I can only eat canned ones or if someone peels them for me. Yeah, I know, weird.

    @superchemicalgirl = the low record we broke the other night was it got down to 41 in town but actually here we got down to 36o next to the house and came close to frosting again out in the field.
