Thank You Master Gardeners:
The York County Cooperative Extension Master Garden program has visited the farm twice. In mid-April 25 students learned about pruning blueberries and peaches and last week they returned for a Tree and Wild Flower Identification class.
There is A Lot of Mowing and Peach Pruning Going On!
Currently we are all trying to keep up with the grass. Mowing almost daily are Chris, John, Jen, Autumn and Lily. Thinning the peaches is another priority. No lack of something to do!!
If anyone wants to learn how to thin peaches come on over!
It seems that the more fruit you remove allows the tree to put more energy into making larger fruit.
