We are well launched on another growing season. The apple trees are blissfully unaware of coronavirus. Bloom did not start until May 21 – very late after a very cold spring and some near misses on freeze damage. Now very warm and bloom will be over quickly. At this point the potential is there for a good crop, but many steps still to go. We are planning how to safely manage pick your own with social distancing.
Our daughters are all dealing with over full households as all the college grandchildren were sent home – two seniors will have “virtual “ graduations – but everyone is healthy and still employed. We are very glad that all my trips to Boston for chemo were completed just before the lockdown and that the treatments are working.

Hope everyone is managing ok thru the lock down and staying healthy.
