Week 8: Orchard Cider Year


OCY8 Outside

February 23 OUTDOORS: Snow temporarily gone: Jeff’s out to prune — raspberries! Each year he takes out most of last year’s growth to leave only 3-4 canes per foot. They look like sad rows of whiskers, then explode into mighty hedges in spring.  (We grow 1.5 acres of berries for a quick happy summer pick-your-own season.) LDS


OCY8 Inside




February 24 INDOORS: Wintry mix outside, cold, dark & early inside, why not taste Wickson, sharpest of sharps? Looking for variations, barrel to barrel. Got to know these things, people don’t call us arTIZanal for nothing. LDS
