It’s time to trim the trees and bushes.

As I mentioned last year, I don’t follow any school of thought or method when it comes to pruning, trimming, or gardening for that matter. I just trim the trees and bushes to thin them out and make them look better, not for maximum production or anything like that. We get too much produce as it is.

I prefer this time of year when the fruit trees and bushes are dormant, and there is not much else to do in the garden, and the leaves are not in the way. According to authorities, some should be pruned in the late summer or fall, but I usualy don’t have time then, or I have forgotten all about it.
