Apple and Pear Fruit Thinning. 5.13.14

About the only puttering today - used a kitchen scissors to thin apples and pears.   Thinned all of the varieties.  distance between fruits is the width of my hand.  That makes for larger, earlier, better tasting fruits.  The technique is simple.  Just cut off all apples or pears, save one, in each cluster.  If clusters less than about 4 inches apart, just leave one.
