This morning started out really cold. 10 degrees outside to be exact. (since I began farming I am obsessed with checking the weather) I was really dreading another cold day of pruning apple trees. It’s getting old. However, something amazing happened……the sun came out, I was in good company, and we ended up having an awesome day of pruning.
I actually don’t mind pruning apple trees on a day like today. However, the most difficult thing about working at the farm now is that we do the same thing all day long. In the heart of the season we were busy doing so many different tasks. This has been quite the adjustment. But just wait, in the middle of July I will be daydreaming of pruning apple trees while I try desperately to stake and string tomatoes.
