Katherine pulling the tree wagon. The snow plow is still on because we needed it just a two weeks earlier.
Pete is hauling pea-stone gravel which was used as a mulch around the new trees. The lads here play football for Binghamton. Good thing too. Each bucket they lifted was over 80 pounds and they lifted 520 buckets.
Katherine doesn't drive stick shift, unless it's a tractor. Katherine learned how to drive this old Deere in 20 minutes! She's hauling the water wagon, which is how we gave each tree five gallons of water.
Still time to enjoy spring.
Lunchtime! Kate, Molly and Sharon served up some great lunches. Hardwearing Howie Pack is sitting in front of Patty's amazing homemade cookies--apples adorned with honey bees.
The foreladies. I like how Harper is wearing gloves while holding the orchard layout map.
Note to the Modern Farmer, she is wearing Maui Jim sunglasses.
If you send me pictures of the planting I'll post them up here.
