How to Grow Your Own Pie

1. Dig holes in orchard-to-be. 
2. Open skinny parcel labelled "Live Trees" ordered from catalog. Unpack scrawny rooted apple-sticks.  
3. Plant apple-sticks. Water generously and regularly. 
4. Pound posts into ground beside each apple-stick; attach tree "cages" to protect apple-sticks from greedy deer, rabbits, cows, horses. 
5. Build fence around orchard. Repair fence once or twice a year when cows damage it. 
6. Irrigate and occasionally prune apple-stick-trees for 6 years and 5 months. 
7. Pick apples and make pie!

"The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest." --Psalm 85:12 ESV
