Fall at the Orchard

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.
