Our property here is an orchard. We have over 10,000 fruit trees - apple, pear, peaches and cherries. All of us have our jobs - raking prunings, mowing grass, weeding, moving sprinkler pipes, feeding the crew, picking up garbage, picking fruit, selling it road-side. It is a working summer as well as a playing summer and is an amazing counter-balance to our Fairfield County structured life. Pictured left are my two children and their cousin selling Lapin Cherries at $2 a pound! I LOVE sitting road-side... talking to people, handing our samples and selling the 'fruits' of our collective labor, and so do my kids. ( though mostly my father's)
This may be my last post for a little while as I am heading off to Park City then to Savary Island, a remote island off the coast of BC, with the family..... Blessings to all.
