Going out on a limb in Mystic

Bill Whittle, center, co-owner of Whittle's Farm in Mystic, climbs a McIntosh apple tree Wednesday while he and Daniel Infante, left, and his grand-nephew, Phil Whittle, right, prune branches. Pruning helps produce larger apples and also lets sunlight through the branches, giving the fruit better color. Trees are a week or two behind schedule in budding this spring because of the cold winter.
