Orchard People pod cast

Such a great resource and an easy way to learn . I planted a new orchard snd have relied on this podcast to help me establish good cultivation practices and healthy plants. Also subscribe to Susan’s fruit tree care course.

A great find in podcast land

With a Library of 70 episodes (as of this writing) anyone who is interested in growing fruit can find something that gets their attention. The guests are terrific and the topics are timely and informative. Most of all, there is an underlying theme of working with nature instead of against her in trying to maximize quality, production, and joy in ones fruit growing endeavors.
