As usual,  many things are happening at the farm. The property now is officially unrecognizable. If you visited even a week ago, it doesn't look the same at all now. Our outer orchard (and significant chunks of our inner orchard) have been worked over for days by a scraper, which has obliterated all non-tree vegetation. But more important than the weeds being dead is that every hole, bump, depression, and undulation is now removed. The orchard floor is perfectly smooth; and as promised, we can play croquet out there now if we wanted to. Well maybe bocce ball, we don't have a croquet set, but the point is made nonetheless.
