I ventured out into the pistachio orchard right on New Year’s Day to see what was happening. This was right after a beautiful full moon on the last day of the month/year/decade. It was a triple Blue Moon and Lucy and I both enjoyed sniffing around in the bright moonlit night.
The next day we both went out into the orchard to see what we could see. The pistachio trees had been pruned just a few days before. They need to have this done so they can produce new green pistachio bearing growth in the Spring. The pruning results in lots of sticks covering the ground.
I was in Heaven! I couldn’t decide which one to pick up first. Lucy and I discovered an old gopher hole and tried to dig him out. No luck. I think he was long gone. Anyway, we had a great time running around in the leaves and twigs. I don’t think there is any season we don’t enjoy out in the pistachio orchard.
Smell ya later.
