What a great annual meeting Saturday! They are always high energy days but Saturdays was one of the best ever, if not the best, and it is thanks to the amazing work of all of you.
This Week: FIELD TRIP - we will meet at 9:00 AM Foxes Ridge Farm at: 776 Foxes Ridge Rd., Acton, ME 04001. We will be viewing the orchard’s small fruit and tree fruits, discussing orchard development and pruning. We will have a pruning demo the Stevens will conduct. We won’t have a chance for hands on pruning, but we will do so later at one of our upcoming other field trips – stay tuned on that.
Please dress warmly and wear good boots. I am told there is still snow on the ground. Ann Stevens has already prepared a nice home made snack for us. You will truly enjoy and learn from this great orchard and the knowledgable couple Ann and Howard Stevens who have been orchardists for many years.
Homework: Your only homework for this week is to re-review your assignments from the last two weeks on Small Fruits and Tree Fruits.
See you at Foxes Ridge Farm Thursday!
