I just finished the spring pruning. You sure learn alot when you grow stuff on your own.
I'm not sure I'd plant Goldrush again. It always requires a ton of pruning--coupled with extremely late harvest (after several hard frosts)--tho it does keep for the entire winter with that delicious sweet tangy crunch. Now I am noticing a lot of pruning with a selection I got sucked into from Raintree (bless their hearts!)--Greensleeves. Has anyone else played with this tree? I hope it is worth all this effort. This will probably be the first year I'll get any fruit.
The plastic baggie thing sounds like this year's trial. I am soooo tired of plum curculio damage.
Its been a fine 2 days; even with Lake Michigan cooling influence. I've got the orchard cleaned up. Now the rest of the yard awaits. And I am pretty crippled up tonight! Me and the dog are both groaning.
