Petal Fall

Frank and I just took a walk out in the orchard and the petals have pretty much all fallen. The tent worms are really bad this year. I'm sure you've all seen the nasty things on the roadsides. Well, they really like the orchard, too. Seems like we're cutting a couple out and burning them every time we walk out there.

The bloom was spectacular and the weather good for the bees, so it looks like alot of little tiny baby apples out there. Probably too many little tiny baby apples. So we'll need to remove some of them. If we allow all those apples to grow, the apples we pick this fall will be smaller and there are several varieties that will refuse to produce next year if we let them over-produce this year.

We planted squash plants last week. Lots of gourds, too. We have a trellis that's 90 feet long this year and it will have cucumbers and beans as well as gourds on it. We're prepping the pumpkin patch now and have started seeds in the greenhouse. They should be ready to go out in another week or so.
