Spring has finally put in an appearance.  Last week the first fruit buds began to open and show  little green tips.  The warm weather has accelerated the growth and the fruit buds are now open with 1/2 inch green leaves.

There are plenty of fruit buds – no frost is predicted – bloom will probably come week after next.  The pruning finally was completed and all the brush picked up and fed thru the chipper.

So we are started growing our 17’th crop – stay tuned for more developments.  Picture shows fruit buds opening on one of the old McIntosh trees.
