Establishing An Orchard
It was an April day in 2012 that a fine group of helpers converged on Crandall Hill to assist in planting what we've come to call our new orchard.
all the way from Arizona to lend a hand
That fellow you see above is my brother Chris who was recently wondering about the orchard he helped establish on that spring day in Potter County. He's going to have to wait a couple more weeks for an updated picture for I want him to fully appreciate the beauty of the orchard in bloom.
Here are a few photos of the blooms from 2019 to whet his appetite.
And in case you want to refresh your memory, there are links to the orchard planting posts here and here.
