So a couple blogs ago there was a picture of the orchard with base of the tree trunks painted white. This is to enable the trees to withstand the sunlight reflected off the snow that can damage the trunks. Well the job wasn't yet complete and it was unusually warm in the mid-50's today, so time to paint. Here we see Jacob applying paint with a pump up sprayer and then Renee spreading the paint around evenly with a big brush. It is slow going in a high-density orchard with three foot tree spacing. Probably a power painter would help.
But it does make the trees look nice and professional. It's supposed to be nice tomorrow and they should get it finished.
