And for the annual June blog theme … the year’s stump progress. When we started renovating the coffee land at the beginning of 2018, the plan was to divide the three acres into three blocks. We’d stump one block each year in January/February. It’d help us clean up the coffee farm and also control Coffee Borer Beetle. The year’s stumped block wouldn’t contribute any coffee to that season’s harvest. Every year by June, the stumps have grown into lollipops and then been thinned to the strongest 4-5 verticals that will be the producers for the next two years. I find it amazing. Now, the third year, the whole farm has been brought back into control.
My friend Will has been practicing his photography skills with his new phone out in our coffee land. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos, Will.
