Uganda Apple Nursery Update

Coming along; the trees grow like weeds in the lush Ugandan climate and fertile soil.


Curious about why some are growing in sacks… Leftovers?

Enterprising folks!

Curious on the weather: do they not get very much wind? Or do they take the netting down in advance of storms?

Because they fit on the back of the motorcycle easier when they’re in maize sacks.

They do get wind during thunderstorms, one of which hit one of the grafting huts last year. They had extension cords though the rafters for lights run by generator, maybe that’s what attracted it. They got all the furniture out and no one was hurt, but we haven’t rebuilt it yet.

Yikes the fire deal sucks but your trees/nurseries seem to be doing great!
