Default Things that make you say What the....

I'm so thankful that I'm moving next year and buying a house!

Our landlord is.... unusual. We've more or less got him trained by now in calling before he comes by (we're the first tenants they've ever had, we're renting his family home). Most of the time he comes by it's to prune the apple trees. 3 times a year, sometimes more. He's been concerned the last 2 years because one of them has some kind of worm or fungus. I keep wanting to say well gosh if you didn't over-prune the trees then maybe they'd be healthier! In fact today I did mention that I'd done some reading online and saw that apple trees should be pruned in the winter, once the wood has had a chance to harden, so that they're not as susceptible to disease and infection etc. He said yeah he's heard that before but he doesn't believe it. Okay.

He's got one of the trees trimmed down to just the trunk. He's decided that it's too far gone to save and he's going to just remove it. Actually he said he's going to "dig it up", and sure enough he's out there with a pitchfork trying to dig up a mature apple tree.

Apparently later in the year or next year he's going to remove the other one in back because it's "too old", and he thinks that's the reason it hasn't been producing much fruit. Of course the thrice yearly pruning has nothing to do with it...

Boy am I ever going to appreciate not having a landlord!
