In larger pots and colder surroundings my apple trees are beginning their first days of life outdoors. Although they are still in pots, they faced many trials the first couple of days. The cold winds, rain and thunderstorms were enough to put them back to the earth. Only the next week will tell their fate. I still have two more trees to adapt to the outdoors but I will not do so until next week. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.
