I love summer, the days are long and I can enjoy the sunsets on my evening walks. This year was super hot though.
As usual I lug buckets all summer in the hopes of getting fruit from the orchard. At least on piece before the birds (or cows) get it all. Unfortunately this year I was too slow and what the birds didn’t eat the cows did (along with most of the trees).
I am planning to build a chook compound around the orchards eventually. It will be nice to have fresh eggs, fruit and no need to mow the orchard. The trees should do better without regular bovine pruning.
In the meantime, maintenance every weekend without fruit rewards in summer. One day…..
