Darren has been busy in the orchard. Here he is spraying a dormant oil on the trees. It is used to protect the trees from fungus, insects and other diseases. The fruit trees were pruned about two weeks ago. Its does not take us long because they are still young and small. We have also spent time weeding the base of the fruit trees and will soon fertilize them.
Our really big project this spring has been putting up another high tunnel. It has taken us a while because the weather has not been cooperating and planting is the main priority. We are close to being finished and are now waiting for a windless day to put the plastic on. The interns helped us dig out the beds last Friday and today we finished up with adding the amendments. I think we all need a trip to Orvis to soak our sore muscles.
