The daffodils planted along the edge of the orchard planted at the start of winter are beginning to flower. Unfortunately so is the onion weed so began the eradication campaign this afternoon. Certainly each year there is less but it is a constant battle. Did some major pruning of the granny smiths to try to get them back into shape after some years of maintenance pruning. Ground is saturated from the weekend storms – 80mm in just over 24 hours!
