Chipping

Chipping


It’s an exciting day for us. We used to burn our wood, but with our concern for the quality of the air in San Benito County (and the rest of the world) we decided to chip our apricot prunings from last year and use them as ground cover. We are actively looking for ways to reuse the byproducts of our endeavors rather than dispose of them. A long day of gathering the wood in the orchard culminated in the actual chipping. The pieces are then being smoothed over landscaping cloth to keep weeds out of places we don’t want to have weeds!
