Glorious fall has returned to our orchard and it is wonderful. The leaves are just beautiful on our Japanese Maple tree, which always gives us a great show this time of the year.
In my earlier post, If you don’t like the weather in New England, wait five minutes, you know that we had a record setting snow before Halloween. It is not that New Englanders don’t expect or like snow but it was just to early. The snow has melted except for a few patches where there isn’t much sun. The leaves that were covered by eight inches of snow can now be mulched.
There is a lot of tree trimming and removal that has to be done. The weight of the snow ripped some of the apples trees right out of the ground and others were broken in half.
As I was out on my garden tractor mulching, I had some visitors that I thought you might enjoy seeing.
You would think that we had a turkey farm. There are about fifty turkeys in the orchard everyday.
We always have a lot of deer because of the apples and all the green grass. They are staying in the woods more now that it is hunting season but venture into the orchard early in the morning and late afternoon.
I am so happy that beautiful fall weather has returned so that I can be out in the orchard to enjoy it. Maybe there will still be time to make an apple pie. I hope that you enjoy the photos from a day in my life in New Hampshire. Autumn greetings to everyone and I hope your day is as nice as mine.
