Well, you’re almost half-way through the growing season, and harvest is well under way. All the pleasure and excitement of bringing in a successful harvest of fruit may be balanced with having to cope with some of the challenges that nature can throw at us.

Summer pruning is one of the main jobs to put into action at this time of year, and of course it’s still important to be paying attention to pest and disease control. Building healthy soil is an “any time” job (or maybe an “all the time” job!), and it’s time to begin the review and planning process that helps you get the most out of your fruit trees.

Happy harvests!
