GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Apple farmers in northeastern New York are happy with this year's crop.
The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (http://bit.ly/GC0dUX ) that with this year's apple harvest about half over, orchard owners in that area say they have plenty of fruit for U-pick customers.
Farmers say the biggest challenge for this year's crop came during the early summer, when frequent rains made it hard to control pests and fungus.
JoAnne Borden of Borden's Orchard in Easton says there are a lot of apples this fall and they're looking good.
Dan Wilson of Hicks Orchard in Granville plans to use momentum from this year's harvest to add about 2,500 new apple trees to his orchards in the spring.
