I didn’t have a radio on all day, so I didn’t hear anything about this until almost 3:30, when Dad called to tell me, after I’d gotten back to York. Holy carp.

To answer your question from yesterday. It was 15 acres, 900 semi dwarf Jonathan, Cortland, Red D and Golden D. 500 in the front 400 in the back. 12 sprays a year beginning with oil and some hot pesticides I had to get a license to use. The A-Hole who sold it to me didn't tell me it had shepherd's crook, AKA fire blight, AKA terminal tree cancer, and by the time I had the county extension come diagnose it it was too late. I tried to prune it all out but it infected the whole orchard in little over 5 years. I bought the property for the house and acres, the orchard basically free.
