A vigorous growing shoot on a blueberry. These shoots can grow really fast and help the blueberry bush gain some size!

All three apple seedlings in the food forest seem to be thriving so far, and with almost zero signs of any disease or pest issues!

This apple tree had a disease issue on the tips of two main shoots. It looks to have healed nicely on its own, and has two vigorous shoots coming up to replace the old ones!
