“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.”
– Justice Louis Brandeis, 1856-1941

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

We planted Honeycrisp, Sundance, and WineCrisp on B.118 and MM.111 rootstock. The trees are from Cummins Nursery.
