Since last year our apples were fruitless there is a lot of water sprouts/suckers on every tree so I decided to cut all them off and then prune the rest of the branches.
Another thing that bothered me while pruning was the fact that I'm too short for everything. Our trees are only 2,5 meters tall but even with this height I can reach all branches with normal shears.
I had to use shears that are on tall metal stick and have rope for cutting. This injured skin on my hands so now they are all sore.
I managed to clean all the suckers and now all I have to do is to shorten the remaining branches. There is a lot of waste from pruning.
Orchard is wet and slippery but also full of flowers.
and weird mushrooms.
I've also planted some spinach and here it is...
Oh wait..there is nothing there! Bugs did it again. I've sown 2 whole bags and there is nothing. They ate everything.
If they ate everything during the winter I'm afraid to think what they'll do during the summer.
I think this will be a buggy year.
