Orchard maintenance – 2017

170827 orchard no fortresses

This Summer (2017) we’ve been removing the cages that were built to protect the trees from deer and rabbits. These were great when first installed and gave the trees good protection, but they made it hard to weed and they were starting to constrain the growth. We’ve now removed about 45 cages, with about 6 to go.
