Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

The weather is starting to Warm and its time to prune the Apple Trees. We started Monday and Finished up this morning. When the sun broke Thur the clouds it was very pleasant. There are a couple of key pruning things to do, one is to cut all the vertical runner branches some folks call them water wicks. the other thing is to cut all the sucker growth around the bottom these at from the root stock and won't grow true apples.
