Maintaining the Orchard

Maintaining a productive orchard is a lot of work.

The large orchard surrounding my pool includes more than 200-fruit trees. There are apple trees, plum trees, cherry trees, peach, pear, medlar, and quince trees. Since it was first planted in 2017, these trees have provided so many wonderful fruits. To keep them healthy and looking their best, we prune and feed them regularly. And yesterday, my outdoor grounds crew started the task of manicuring the pits under every tree, adding nutrient-rich mulch made right here at my farm.
