apple tree pruning at "a bit of earth"

Here's Lindsey and her Papa, pruning apple trees in the old orchard at "at bit of earth" in Vermont this past weekend.
She's a crazy woman!
And here's Peter, out on a limb.

Many thanks to Lindsey's friend Dave for sharing his pictures with us. And many thanks again to Lindsey and her Boston buddies for all their help.


  1. How wonderful to have such jobs to do outdoors in the sunshine while the snow melts! We too were in our backyard today weeding, pruning and cleaning out. It was marvelous to feel the warm rays on our backs. The children are eager gardeners. Happy spring!

  2. Fantastic, and the surrounding scenery is amazing!
    No wonder you love it so much!

  3. The view from your place is wonderful! If it was me pruning the apple trees, i'd be on the ground with the pole pruner...Lindsey up in the tree made me go "ulp"!
