In years past, the plum blossoms would have already made the scene with its display of tight clusters of white blossoms. We are still waiting.  Some pluots are blooming and we see speckles of white blossoms in the orchard.
This time of year we are looking for dry days so we can be out taking care of the dormant orchard.  Pruning and cleaning up the trees are on the agenda.
      It is tree planting time.  We have been scouting the orchard for planting sites.  This year we will plant Summerset peaches and a root stock for grafting those old plum varieties that are no longer available at the nursery.
