Every year we try to plant more food crops. One of this years projects was a pair of Apple trees inside the garden deer fence. We have a mature tree like this in our front yard, and it is both our favorite and the deer's favorite too. It is unusual because it does not need to be grafted like most every other apple tree. This area was our Goat and Sheep corral years ago and now has deep rich soil. The protected trees should do very well.
