The Orchard

Yes, we have an orchard of sorts on this property. Neglected, yes, but only by humans. The bears have apparently been reaping the benefits for years. This has been rather hard on the trees (apples, pears, cherries and plums). Also, the bears have been negligent about pruning.

Today, we rectified this. More factually, Simon did the rectifying; I was the helper. Mostly, this involved dragging branches up the hill while postholing in the snow and building up our first hugel for our hugel kultur garden.

Both projects went very well. The pruning is almost complete and the hugel structure is looking great.

Tomorrow : completion of pruning and ordering on seeds online. Yay!
