i did an inspection of the young fruit trees to see how they made it through their first winter. out of the 20+ we planted in the back field, three didn't make it and there is a fourth i am suspicious of. i made a trip out to the farmer's co-op and picked out two dwarf sweet cherries as replacements so far, and got them in the ground. we will be making a trip back for some more apple trees soon, so we'll pick out the other replacements then.
while i was at it, i started replacing the nursery tags with the copper tags i bought last year. sometimes it is the small jobs that are the most neglected and procrastinated, so i am glad i at least got started on the labeling. i also need to make a tree map just in case someone loses their tag over the years.
