Owner's comments

Plot 9 Lots of mildew and bugs eating the leaves and apples in 2012. I removed all five of it's apples in mid August as they were going bad. This tree hasn't grown much structure this year but has started to respond to liquid fertilizer with new leaves growing within a couple of weeks of the first fertilizer application. I'm going to aggressively prune this tree when it is dormant as it has too many low branches beneath the primary branch. Hopefully, this will trigger a lot more growth next year.
