  • Fruit Thinning

    Under instructions from wiser fruit growing minds than ours, we have decided to hand remove as much of the apple crop, which is surprisingly large, that has set on our trees. All that productive tree energy needs to go into getting fully established in their permanent home.

    Here you can see that the fruitlets are pushing 1/4 inch size…time to thin! Bummer…would love to have kept the fruit this first year in the orchard.
