Week on the Farm: 4/3/16

This week’s highlight was the cutting down of a very tall tree that was too close to the garden and newly constructed greenhouse. We had debated over its possible demise in recent weeks and decided to let it be, but Farm Boss overruled the decision and down it went. We estimated it to be at least 70 feet tall, and with the help of a cable & tractor it dropped right where it needed to go in between two buildings.

For every tree that goes down on The Farm, we plant two new ones. This time it was two apple trees, a start toward our future orchard.
