I do not know if this -will reach

I am not as experienced as some
of the men who make a study of
' fruit and especially "cherries, 'and
can only tell' what I hare learned
of them' n the' past five years.'
Our ' orchard, of about ' eight
acres of "bearing trees; fs located
in Mission Bottom,' on the first
ridge from the Willamette river.
" When we came, onto , the place
the orchard-had been taKeh care
of in a haphazard manner," so far
as cultivation and pruning were
concerned. , The. past seven years
have been devoted to getting It
up In the best possible shape and
each year it has been bearing a
larger quantity'of fruit.

This year while others had a
short crop we had the best crop in
the history of our orchard, and I
think the reason .for this was
largely 'from applying three itons
to the acre of lime "from the state

plied in February, according to
the instructions from the Oregon
Agricultural college. ; I also think
a big feature in the large crop was
the pollination by, the bees. .We
have had bees for the past three
years, and, now have five, stands
of good strong bees and two young
hives caught this 'summer, which
gire ample for the size of the or
chard. If the sun .was, out for a short
time during the blossom time the
bees were out. working and were
at it early and late, and I feel sure
that they are a wonderful. help to
any, person raising fruit. From
the. five stands we took oft 482
pounds of fine honey, and Mr. D.
Kaufman of Hubbard, who cares
for my bees, told me that- these
bees had done the best by far of
the 100 stands that he cared for
around the county, and also that
the orchard pasture was a big help
toward the honey yield.
In 1923 we had about five tons;
1924 . about , eight tons, and in
1925, this year, second year after
lime and five stands of bees, twen
ty tons and 805 pounds of Royal
Anns and Lamberts.
