Excerpt from Transactions of the Maine State Pomological Society: For the Year 1903

One after another there have been three freakish years, the last of which perhaps because we are right in it, seems the worst - a frost every month in the year - a spring frost that froze everything to death it could lay its icy breath on, and an early September frost that ruined a large part of the corn that had survived the unfavorable conditions with which it was begirt. A season like this a century ago in Maine would have made a famine as great as that of which our grandmothers told us in our youthful days. Yet under these unfavorable conditions for many of our crops, the State has had a good crop of apples. The first year the fruit was in ready demand, and in not a few cases a barrel of apples paid for a barrel of flour. The second year in consequence of the immense crop in New York and other states the price was low a large part of the season, though there in many instances in consequence of careful handling and honest packing the price was satisfactory. The present season in Maine the apple crop in the State is the largest of the three, and by some is estimated as high as a million barrels. The early or fall fruit sold well, and the prices being paid later have been satisfactory to most growers.

Orchard Conditions.

In recent years there has been a marked improvement in the care of the orchards of the State, though in many cases there is a notable absence of care.

There was about the usual planting of fruit trees in the State - a very general planting of a few trees, though not many large plantings were made.
