Week 8 ’17, Orchard Cider Year
February 22, OUTDOORS: Last week’s fluffy snow has collapsed but still covers the ground. Fitz is back to pruning! His back went out, but now it’s in! There’s a pruning video HERE for anyone who’d like to see him in action. Throughout #orchardcideryear ’16 he shows up in dozens of posts – not to mention the un-posted decades he’s worked these fields. The whole FHC crew feels relieved that Fitz is back out here, good as new.
February 22, INDOORS: Here’s another in our “contact with concrete” series: Ben hooking up to cycle a hot rinse through one of the bottling tank we just emptied. Finally we’re building up some inventory! Cidermaking ain’t showbiz. LDS
