Farmer Tom has been busy pruning trees. It is a hard, tedious job, but one that has to be done every year. We were so disappointed that the late freeze in March ended our hopes for any peaches this year; however, we have been pleasantly surprised to see some peach trees are now blooming. We may have a few peaches after all, but probably not enough to offer to the public. The weather is so fickle.
We are looking forward to the next few weeks! We have spring field trips and then our spring festival May 5, 6 & 7. Friday, May 5, is VIP night and we are planning a special time that will be fun for everyone. The pie baking contest will be on Saturday morning. I’m trying to figure out how to make a link to the pie baking entry form. Hope to have that figured out in the next day or so. There is prize money: 1st place – $100, 2nd place – $50 and 3rd place – $25. Entry fee is $5 and the proceeds will go to the Robertson County Historical Society. Thanks to our sponsor, Fleming Law Firm and Mediation Center!
It’s time to get busy. We are looking forward to another great season at Shade Tree.
