Back Again – Getting older – retirement and farming!


Took a trip with Becki, Reghan, and Declan to the Twisted Tree Farm Nut Festival this weekend passed in Spencer, NY. Stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and froze at the the festival but learned more about growing nut trees and harvesting nuts. Saw Buttermilk Falls.


Purchased 4 Elderberry bushes – 2 “York” variety and 2 “Scotia” variety. Planted them in the back orchard with a good amount of ramial wood chips around each planting. Also put the remaining chips around one apple tree and one plum tree. Then “chipped up” another wheelbarrow full for use later this year. The Browns won. Life is good.
