Budding

In the beginning there was the bud. The patch bud was donated or purchased from another orchard and taped to our rootstock.

The tree-guard protected the base of the tree from weed sprays.

The bud was subject to wind, birds and heat. It remains a miracle that this helpless appendage would develop into the trees that we see today.
