Fire-blight or Over-watering?? - Apple Trees & Blackberries

I have two young apple trees which were just planted a couple of weekends ago. Prior to planting, their leaves were green and looked completely normal. We planted and carefully followed planting instructions, digging large hole (water basin), adding compost, top soil, mixed with native soil, and were sure to leave root bulb 1'' above ground level. Added a little mulch. We also planted new, perfectly healthy blackberry bushes. We then got lots of crazy weather--tons of rain, and a little bit of hail, and lots of wind.

I have attached photos of our applies trees and blackberry bushes. As you can see, the leaves are brown and curling, especially on the apple trees. The apple tree leaves have holes in them in certain spots, and some of the branches appear to have curled over/dropped a bit. Our neighbors planted over 30 fruit trees two springs ago, and every single one died! Everyone out here on the north eastern plains seems to struggle to keep trees alive. We are on the border of Adams and Weld county, about 25 miles north of Strasburg.

I need help to determine what is wrong with my apple trees, and I'd also like to find out how we can go about having our soil tested by the extension.

Thank you for your help!

Plant Identification & management

I would like to find out what the name of this plant is. It seems like some type of sage but mostly lies close to the ground. It is taking over my horse pasture and I need to know the best way to mitigate it.
