The pears are  in as well as Zestar! and Oriole apples.  We sell the fruit prepicked by the small bag at our self service table outside the pole building. Click on the Apples and Pears link for more information.

The Christmas trees are looking very nice.  One of the best growing seasons so far.  We are in the process of shaping (shearing) the trees right now -  a busy time, but great to be out in nature.


We have been busy clearing the field of left over branches and have chipped them into mulch for moisture control in different areas. 

We just finished straightening some leaders on exotic Koreana fir trees which requires pruning and sometimes aligning with a rod tied onto the leader until the tender growth hardens.

The grass rows have been mowed twice this season.  All the rain has been good for the trees and esp. some weeds which receive the mowing.
