A Big Job

Pruning

Cooler temperatures! Today’s big gardening job: pruning one our two Cherry trees. They haven’t been pruned since we moved in, and they were badly in need of being topped. So much of the fruit in June was just too high up on the tree to be harvested. A terrible waste! Husband read all the information he could find on pruning cherry trees, checked with the Oregon State Extension Service online information, and decided he was ready to tackle the job. It took all morning to prune one of the trees, but we were able to get the limbs and branches cut up and packed into the green recycle bin before the truck came to pick it up. We are tired tonight, but very glad to have one tree done.
