The Poetics of Fruit Thinning

It’s hard, but somebody’s got to do it!  Oh how easy it would be to let all those gorgeous fruitlets grow to fruition, smile smile.  They look so beautiful and full of potential.  It seems to go against nature in a certain sense to not let them fulfill their destiny, but alas…we are growing for great, intensely flavorful, and optimally healthy fruit.  Which means, with deep regret and the sincerest of apologies , not all them apples are meant to make it.  []
