Spring Cleaning at the Orchard

I visited the orchard this week.  Spring is definitely here and the weeds are already getting a head start on me.

Spent some time clearing off last year’s kudzu of all the trees.

Then I spent some time mowing down the weeds.

Some trees are just starting to bloom while others, such as plums, have already set their fruits.

Then there are other trees like the apples and cherries which are still bare and without leaves.

Found a bird’s nest in one of the loquat trees.

A dead possum turned up during my mowing.
