Finally, I've been able to get back to work on the orchard. An ankle injury last winter, not on the orchard, prevented me from doing heavy work on rough ground for the past few months. Given the history of previous owners allowing dumping on the land, the ground is quite bumpy and it is easy to twist an ankle while mowing the grass.
So this week, I've been able to spend a couple of days mowing the waist high grass without causing any repeat pain to my ankle. The trees are doing well this year, particularly the cherry tree which is laden with green fruits. Let's hope it doesn't get raided by pigeons/blackbirds.
