We are taking advantage of some beautiful weather to mow the orchard one more time, reducing cover for mice and voles to minimize damage to the tree trunks over the winter.
As some of you know, I had an “incidental finding” of a slow growing non-Hodgkins lymphoma (SLL) in the CT scans after my Halloween accident last year. The doctors said the watch and wait period is over and I have successfully completed three rounds of immunotherapy – several more weekly rounds and then six monthly rounds still to come. The long term prognosis is good. I am tolerating the treatment well and still able to get work done around the orchard – never a dull moment.
Hope all of you are still enjoying some of this year’s apples.
