Now that spring has come, let me report to you the condition of the apple orchard where all the snow has melted.
We’ve had rather higher temperatures since mid-March. We found no snow in the field because of the early thaw this year.
When we visited the orchard on April 2, 2018, it was a nice spring day with a bit of chilly wind. The workers who prune branches or those who pick them up off the ground wore light clothes. Some wore no jackets.
Since there were no leaves in the trees nor grass on the ground, we could see to the end of the field.
Take a good look at the branch, you’ll find some swelling of buds. The apple trees are awakening. Spring is here.
After the thaw, the warm weather makes the farming easier. The long awaited spring is finally here. We expect to have apple flowers bloom in late April this year. It’s really beautiful to view fields covered with a carpet of apple flowers.
