Owner's comments

Both trees are in the Old Barnyard Orchard. They are diagonal from each other in the orchard. I need to remove some local trees that are in the lot next to them which will limit their growth. Walnuts, Oaks,ect. There are 13 apple trees in the lot with them. This was planted to be my early apple orchard originally.

    I have two Baldwins from two different years. #1 is 2014 and #2 is 2016. This is the first year that #1 has flowered. They take longer to reach flowering stage.
