Buffalo Ridge Orchard

Growing Quality Local Produce Responsibly

Garden Log: February 11th-25th

Marcus Pruning

Garden Log: February 11th-25th

  • Pruned 360 apple trees
  • Harvested four tubs of spinach for the coop and Mt. Vernon’s winter market
  • Planted forty flats of rosemary
  • Planted forty flats of lavender
  • Planted tomato flats and root stock
  • Clean and insulated walk-in cooler

The past couple weeks we have been in the orchard pruning.   Although we wish that the weather was a little nicer it is a welcomed alternative last year’s warm February which caused premature bloom.  So we are happy to put on our ski masks and insulated coveralls to work out in the orchard.  Also we are still enjoying fresh spinach from the hoophouse and are savoring the  last of our winter carrots.

About buffaloridgeorchard

Buffalo Ridge Orchard grows vegetables, apples, and pears for local coops and farmer's markets. We have over 25 different types of new and classic apple varieties. In 2011 we installed our first moveable hoop house which allows us to grow greens and root vegetables in the winter and get an early start on tomatoes and extend the season for other vegetable crops.
