Spring is in the Air!

The first day of Spring is in 4 more days, and we are already feeling it here! With temperatures predicted to be in the 70s by this weekend (overnights in the 30s and 40s), things will be really hopping in the orchards!
Though delayed some by all the snow this winter, our pruning is on schedule, and the trees have been trimmed up and are ready for a good year's growth. The warm temperatures the past few days have really caused the buds to swell up. We predict that the peach trees will be in bloom in the next 7-10 days. I'll be sure to post pictures, because it's an incredible sight!

Most of the strawberry plants have been uncovered so they can take advantage of the warm sun. They look good and healthy right now, and if everything is on schedule, we should be picking the first berries in early May. We can't wait!
