The trees are 58 years old, so they're HUGE and it's too late to prune this year. This isn't a good thing. Plus, they're hungry. Plus there are pests and fungi to deal with.
We're not going to have it easy. And fertilizer, chemicals, fuel, repairs etc. aren't cheap. But my Dad adores these trees and we want to bring in a good harvest not only for the money, but to make him happy.
I'll keep you posted.
PS: FYI, that tractor at left is huge. See the itty bitty old man operating it?
That gives you an idea how big the trees are. And these pix are 4 years old!
