It is once again autumn in Ontario. While the leaves have only begun to change colour, work at the farm is ramping up before colder months settle in. Our walnut orchard has fought hard to live through one of the hottest and driest summers on record. Maintenance of the orchard over the next few months will require regular weeding to give our saplings the most sunlight possible, and install tree guards to protect the trees from unwanted pests who often chew the young bark. Here are some photos of the orchard and the farm as fall takes hold. Enjoy.
