Winter pruning moving on well



As we approach mid-March, we have good progress to report with the tree pruning.  The weather has been colder than normal, but fairly dry so we have lost very few days to bad weather.  The pear team is within 2 days of finishing (pictured left, Stanislav; Carol; Saulius and Sarunas) and the apple team is now in the South end of the farm, heading for the last few orchards (pictured right, Rob; Ray; Cristina; Graham and Jeff).  Fruit bud is plentiful and the trees are looking good.  The pear team will turn their attention to planting the new Bramley apple orchard as soon as the soil dries up sufficiently, so the trees will go into warmer soil and establish quickly.
