Weed mat.

One of the biggest challenges of transitioning to organic is the weeds. They love to grow. And they take water and nutrients away from our trees. So how do we handle weeds organically? Discing the rows with the tractor and the old school hoe and a huge crew of people. But there is also weed mat. We hope that it will eliminate at least some of the weeds! We will keep you posted.

Ever notice that they never show you the inside of a fruit tree?  That is often where the best fruit is.   The pictures below were taken this past December.





Look at all that fruit.  Fruit that’s been sheltered from the wind and rain and sun.  Just let to grow and get super sweet.
