Winterchill by Finney_ Ernest J
What interested me about this book is that it's about a plum orchard in CA and over the years as the family prunes the crops and harvests they expand to Christmas trees.
Loved hearing of the actual work and what's involved as it's similar to other fruit trees that I am familiar with. Good story of a family who tends to the orchard over the decades.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
