Whats happen at Country Taste Farm. The End of November has had some very nice weather for working outside we have finished all of the updates and repairs needed on the high tunnels new side walls and new plastic cover on High tunnel # 3. I have installed a better trellis system on the raspberries and have the post brace installed on the Honey Crisp apple trees. Strawberries are put to bed with straw cover. We painted the apple Trees with Surround: Derived from kaolin clay, a natural mineral, Surround WP forms a barrier film that acts as a broad spectrum crop protectant. It is labeled to control insect pests and disease, while protecting against sunburn and heat stress. The kaolin clay coats the plants with a white powder film that acts in several ways to deter pests. 
Hopping to start pruning raspberries next week.
