I've neglected my blog, but then that's not the only thing!

Putting into words, our first year as orchardist was a difficult task.  I tried several times, but must have never posted.  The final death toll was 60%, which is staggering.  However, in light of the fact that we have healthy children, my husband has his day job and as a friend pointed out, our trees dying is really a first world problem, we didn't spend too much time dwelling on our failure.

We're making plans to pull out and replant the dead trees and put in a micro emitter system this spring.  If this doesn't work, we'll grow something else.  Marijuana, perhaps.  After all, it IS a weed and like most organic growers, we are proven experts at growing weeds.
