Our 2018-2019 season was a busy one. So much so that we neglected to post here for a while. We did manage to take a few photos along the way though. Here’s a quick recap of what we’ve been up to.
We shipped a lot of trees this spring. Some went via UPS and some went on very large trucks that tested the maneuvering skills of the drivers, like this Canadian bound double trailer that had to back into our loading area. The good news is, the driver passed the test with flying colors and no cargo, buildings or equipment were damaged in the process!
Earlier this month we installed a septic system — check out that drain field! — for our new barn at Black Jack Acres. We are all eagerly awaiting the build-out of the bathrooms this summer, but in the meantime, we are grateful for the services provided by RonJons Unlimited of Hillsboro, Oregon.
In May we began the annual mounding process, a vital step in the cultivation of robust root development on our rootstock. We’ve had a beautiful and sunny spring which has helped the process move along swiftly.
Stay tuned for more updates as we head into summer on the farm!
