My last few posts have demonstrated how chaotic this last year has been, but especially since harvest season. (Two months… , Beginning Winter Aquaponics) I tend to also do pruning of my fruit trees and arbor in late fall, early winter, but with the weather maintaining in the 60’s and 70’s through Christmas, I had to wait a little longer.
There are many that say to prune in the spring, others in the winter, but I am a fall pruner. It seems to work out well for me and my timeline, but usually show good results the next grow season.
We have apples, pears, peaches, persimmons, and a huge grape arbor, so there is a lot to be pruned and prepped for next season. I have now been able to get most of it done but still need to cut back on my arbor a lot more. I should have time in the next few days to finish it up. Probably not tomorrow, with a high predicted of 26, but it is suppose to be back around 40 by Thursday.
Forgot to mention the loofa’s also. We got almost 3 dozen from 1 plant. This was a first for us, but I think we will do them again.
