Spring has sprung and the orchard demands attention

It was nice to have time working on the taproom and getting the cider house in order but the orchard is demanding attention. We we late to respond and now have weeds and fire blight strikes to contend with. Fireblight is a nasty infection that can decimate an orchard and we’ve been spraying every 4 days to try to stay on top of it. We still had many infected trees that had to be severely pruned.
