Spotlight on Cedars

These last few days, Richard has been focusing on the Cedar Trees, which are quite happy here on this little Farm.  The soil and the conditions must be just right. 

On this day, he was removing galls from Cedar Apple Rust (which contribute to disease in Apple Trees).  He has also been removing the extra trees, of which we have many.  There are a lot more to go.  Most are small (at the seedling stage), but others are bigger requiring a saw. 

This is a little reminder to self:  It's a lot easier to remove a seedling than it is a more established tree.  Of course that is obvious.  We have been quite busy these last few years both on and off the Farm.  However, the little Farm routine is beginning to have more of rhythm and flow to it. That feels good.
