PRUNING THE HOME ORCHARD (http://nmsu.life/7f ): Orchard pruning differs from landscape tree pruning. The purpose of pruning in an orchard is to maximize economic return and stimulate early fruit production. Landscape tree pruning is usually intended to maintain a tree's natural form, health and longevity and to minimize hazards that develop from improper pruning and unrestricted branch growth. Also read: "Tree Pruning Techniques", http://nmsu.life/63 and “Training Young Apple Trees to the Central Leader System” (http://nmsu.life/ax).

Even when you wash your dishes with soap and hot water, you aren’t dissolving fats, oils or grease. You’re just moving them further down your pipes where they will eventually cool and harden. That’s where they will clog sewer pipes and create backups!

Wherever you can, dispose of FOG in your garbage can.

NMSU TO CO-HOST ACEQUIA RESEARCH WORKSHOP THURSDAY, JAN. 14, FROM 6 TO 7:30 PM ON ZOOM (http://nmsu.life/ah): To register for the “Acequias and Science: A Community Conversation,” workshop, visit http://nmsu.life/acequiaworkshop. “Soon after ‘Acequias of the Southwestern United States’ was published online, we were asked by our partner NMAA to co-host a workshop. The goals are to give the public valuable information about how we acequia communities may be more resilient in the face of climate change and urban population growth and to hold a larger conversation. The co-authors/researchers will be presenting their individual chapters spanning from hydrology to sociology to system dynamics to range science and more. This is truly a large and striking contribution to the acequia body of work,” said Adrienne Rosenberg, editor of the book.
