Excerpt from Transactions of the Maine State Pomological Society: For the Year 1894; Including the Proceedings of the Winter Meeting, Held in Foxcroft, January 8th and 9th, 1895

Again it becomes the duty of your secretary to present an annual report of the transactions of the Society. During the year it has afforded me great pleasure and assured me of the progressive work in the State that a larger number all the while are becoming interested in fruit culture. Some men living secluded lives in rural homes, with little reading have often in years past, almost or quite ignored the words of horticultural societies. Unwilling to admit they do not know all there is of fruit culture, they behold the grand success of others, but they are like those in ancient days having, eyes they see not. Many of these are now seeking knowledge which only their vanity in the past has denied them. As illustrative of this an intelligent fruit-grower inquired about the best varieties to plant. I gave him all the points I could, and he concluded by saying that he knew of no better variety than the Baldwin and he was going to set a lot of those in the spring. He remarked that one of the most successful orchards in the county was developed in this way, but failed to note that the cold of winter in this case twice froze back the tops before the trees were acclimated. The provoking thing in this particular case is that the man has grown fruit for nearly half a century. Other men realize the necessity for knowledge and are willing to seek it. This is one of the most encouraging features of the situation. For those who seek knowledge in these days will find it.

The 1894 crop.

The fruit crop in Maine has been large, though it can hardly be called a full crop. Many dealers have assured me that the crop is really much larger than in 1893. Travelling among the orchards in the autumn, one could not fail to notice that many of the trees were nearly barren.
