Hi everyone. The Farm looks so beautiful with the peaches in full blossom. This is about 2-3 weeks early. We dodged the “Frost Bullet” and the blossoms still look viable. Temperatures were in the 20′s some of the mornings. The Apples are not in blossom yet, but they are soon to follow. George planted peas, snap peas, beans about 2 weeks ago, and they are popping out of the ground. He planted corn yesterday, so we can look forward to an earlier season this year. We will open May 8th, and things should be a lot nicer this year than last. It was so cold last year for so long, the hanging baskets, and bedding plants were smaller than usual. This year they will be spectacular.
We are still busy pruning our peaches, cleaning up the stand and the grounds surrounding, there is so much to do! George plowed next to the stand, because we will be planting new peach trees this year on that spot. Every year we get new fruit trees to keep up our orchards. Fruit trees do not last forever! I think I have given up my idea to have a mini-donkey in that spot! Maybe someday. We should have an old fashioned barn raising. Happy Spring.
