Isn't that just a pile of sticks?

Posted on December 6th, 2020 by John Eisenstein

Every week I try to take at least one nice picture of some beautiful growing plant or fun farm activity, but during winter nothing is growing, and we aren't too engaged in fun farming activities either.  We did start winter pruning of our fruit trees, though, hence the little piles of sticks everywhere.  We didn't pay the fruit trees the attention the need and deserve last year, for obvious reasons, but we have some ideas of various things to try which we hope will give us a better harvest of fruit, especially apples.  But no promises--organic tree fruit is very tricky here in Pennsylvania, which is why you don't see a lot of it, and we have a long way to go...

I'll have a better picture for you next week!
