[NAFEX] New Apples

I wouldn't put them under young trees. Voles and mice live in the litter and
often girdle the trees. But, then again, bridge grafting can be fun.

I haul leaves from towns to my rural plantings.  (I like to tell people
working in their yards:  "Can I have your leaves?  I put them on my lawn".)
Was wondering whether to post a comment here that I seem to have less damage
from apple scab than some sprayed orchards, but other factors may be at
play, other than just covering the innoculum source.  I try to get enough
leaves under the dripline of all trees, especially those I didn't control
the weeds, to cover whatever is trying to grow.  It also looks nice.

I'd love to hear, but until the house is built and we've moved I can't go
anywhere.

So what is happening in the world of Apples in the midwest?

I'd also like to hear more from people using mulch and compost in the
orchard.
