February at the farm

We've had about 10 days of pruning so far this winter. January's weather wasn't very cooperative. Pruning is a job some of us like and some of us don't. It can be enjoyable being out in the cold air with the quiet of the field surrounding you. It's fun to talk and laugh while we work. Those who don't like cold, windy working conditions just don't have a fondness for pruning time.

After we cut out the canes we pile them high in the field and burn them. Seems like we've burned mountains of cane piles already and we're not quite half-way through the field!
