Mini Apple Orchard in my front yard

I planted a mini apple orchard in the landscaping of my front yard. I set up trellising for these ultra-dwarf trees. The ultra-dwarfs are created by grafting a budding apple branch (scion) onto the stem-base and roots from a smaller tree with compatible genetics. I believe M27 rootstock was used for these trees. The trellis is required, as the roots are weaker and will not support the weight of the tree. I purchased these trees from Low's 50% off end of season sale. I have three different varieties: Dorsett Golden, Anna, and Fugi. They came from http://www.pacificgroves.com. This website has a cool idea for creating a patio orchard w/ ultra dwarf in containers.
Here is another ultra-dwarf info web-site:
