Saturday June 3, 10:30am-12:30pm Limited to 20 per class, preregistration required. The workshop is mostly outside, so dress for the weather.
There are lots of mid-summer tasks to do in the vineyard and orchard. Summer pruning on fruit trees can save time and headaches during dormant season pruning. Learn how to thin fruit and prune your fruit trees and grape vines for best fruit quality.
