Since coming to the garden club at Fermilab, I’ve agreed to research how to care for the fruit orchard. There are around 30 trees, that are apple, plum, pear and peach.
Orcharding is a whole complex science. It’s pretty overwhelming, but at least there are good books on the subject. This one has won a gold medal from the American Horticulture Society. So far, I’m really enjoying it! It’s highly detailed and definitely not filled with fluff.
