We love our family walks around our picturesque farm. The kids are always excited, they wonder what wild animal they might get to see. Wild turkeys, deer, fox, coyotes, rabbits-you name it-it passes through the orchard. On this particular walk there was a wild turkey that ran passed us. The orchard remains pretty throughout the seasons. This year was the worst on record for producing fruit. Early in the season it fought frosts, a hail storm, and one of the worst droughts that this area has ever seen. The Empire trees barely produced but surprisingly, the Red Delicious did quite well. Fall is near, the colors will change, the apples will fall and the cycle will start again-hopefully next year the trees will produce heavily. Hope you enjoyed this little peek into our country life.
