The Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast recently received a shipment of Buff Orpington Chicks.

At this time we are making critical decisions and selections of what parts of the vine we want to keep in order for the plant to be most productive. The three photos are the same plant starting with the vine unpruned and leafless vine, last years canes still intact.
