Spring is Here!
After a long snowy winter, we are back in the blueberry fields. We started pruning in our first field last week and had good weather and good snow melt for most of the week. The plants in the first field look good so far with nice new growth and good looking fruit buds.
During the winter we tried to get up into the field to cut some of the trees which we cut this fall. We also had some work to do on trees which had been damaged by the infamous ice storm in December. Michael’s sister and her family joined us for a day of wood cutting in early March. They were all very helpful!
Michael and our son Chris went up to burn brush today. It was a cold rainy day but they managed to get the pile in the back of our first field burned and they also were able to get the tractor started and out of the barn. Chris will be graduating from high school this year and attending college next year. We will certainly miss all of his help…especially all of his tractor skills!
