We had 11 volunteers show up at Piper’s Orchard today. The weather was very pleasant, and everyone pitched in. We thinned apples, applied many hundred green-dyed foot sox, and weeded around the bases of the apple trees. With the cool, rainy April and early May, we were concerned that the apples might still be very small. However, the recent sunny days and record-setting heat seem to have encouraged their growth.
