Jolly pruners Day 1: old McIntosh are easy!

Jan 6 OUTDOORS: Pruning starts in the easy trees that nobody can mess up, then grows harder. Various people prune at various times, with Fitz and Steve doing diagnosis and refinements variety to variety, orchard to orchard.  For months and months.
Jacques, Otis and Harry are pruning today, more or fewer may tomorrow! See our pruning video with Fitz & Steve by clicking HERE.         (LDS)
