Who says you can't get fall colors in Southern California? All the fruit has been picked & the peach trees are turning mahogany. It's been a great season for the orchard in 2012. We had lots of u-pickers: families with young children, twenty-somethings looking to can fruit for the first time, even two church groups. We had a grand time hosting them. Jack particularly likes to take kids out on the hay wagon. But fall is upon us & it's time to start thinking about pruning the trees. But we can't prune until the leaves have dropped & that's about a month off. I guess we just have to enjoy the fall colors.
