No leaves on the trees, no snow on the ground. It is that time of year where we are hustling to finish the orchard preparation for the coming season. Many tasks have to be completed before we enter bloom – which is just around the corner (Mid-April)!
George and Eric are finishing up pruning the apple and peach trees. A job in which every tree is given a personalized “hair-cut” in order to maximize fruit quality and size. Not an easy under-taking, by any means. Some of our trees require 20-25 minutes to complete the pruning process. Yes, we are always glad when this three month process of working through the orchard is completed.
I am busy working on developing this website. I have enlisted my son, David, to help with its creation and maintenance. I am grateful as I struggle in completing beyond the basic processes of computer use. We are so fortunate to have a family that wants to be/stay involved with the operation, even though they aren’t close in proximity.
I hope the first day of spring has treated you all well. We look forward to seeing you all at the local markets this summer and fall and to this new venture of launching this website.
