#Timing is important for #summerpruning. In fairness I always find it to be late spring #pruning. So this #apricot has already set it's terminal buds. One could #prune it and possibly get a late flush of #growth, but that could lead to other problems with the new growth not setting properly for #winter.

#summerpruning is not for every #tree. This #fig put on tremendous growth this year, but with it #fruiting on #newwood, to summer #prune would result in #fruit loss. This is exacerbated by the figs #ripening so late in the #summer

Reach for the sky! This #apple can put on a meter of growth a year. The #apricot and #almond even more. #summerpruning for fast upward growing trees can help. By #pruning mid summer, hopefully you can create branching, effectively getting two seasons growth in one season. It also helps as it limits the size of cuts needed in #winterpruning

When #processing #fruit, I am always wondering how I can #useeverything. So this year's #apricot harvest was no exception. This is the squeezed out #kernel mash that has been soaking in #vodka and is on it's way to being my first batch of #Amaretto.

The difference between #bagging and not bagging fruit, when using #nopesticides.

Lovely to see these in our #garden. The greater the #diversity in a garden, the better nature functions to bring us great #food. #foodicanlivewith. The #chameleon
