Organic orchard care

Yesterday morning we spent two hours at an organic orchard care workshop run by orchardist Chris Steenholdt and held in a friend Penny's lovely permaculture garden. With a small collection of bare root stock apple and pear trees on order from Woodbridge Fruit Trees, I figured we'd better learn something about how to care for them. We learned about pruning, pest control, feeding and mulching... as you can see from the photo, this fruit tree business is very serious stuff. Actually, there were plenty of laughs as well.
