Here's a view of our back yard looking east this past Thursday morning. And just so you know I wasn't sipping wine at sunrise, the apple tree does lean and the yard does slope down toward the north. The house sits on the crest of a ridge between two streams, which is why there are vineyards here. Good drainage.
You can clearly see our largest apple tree in the middle. One of the smaller apple trees is visible in the back on the left, covered in red apples. And that's our sweet corn, now topped with tassels and growing ears of golden goodness.
I cut down a dying apple tree earlier this year. The stump is under that clump of grass on the left, and the trunk is lying in the gravel path. I'll get the chainsaw out there and cut that up real soon.
