Update from the Orchard

Apples are nearly done blooming at A.B. Phillips & Sons Fruit Farm.  Prospects are good for a fine crop this year.  Looks like they will be ripening earlier than usual due to the jump start we got on spring.

Peaches are well past bloom and are loaded with tiny fruitlets.  I will be thinning most of them off in May to ensure that they size and develop properly.
