Back after two weeks overseas and the grass has grown 30cms! Most of the apples and pears are in full bloom and petal fall has begun. Some nice warm weather – mid to high 20s but returning to mid teens next week. Half strength lime sulphur spray today along with some hand weeding of onion weed. Cherries have set and very promising crop. Good bloom on the Gravensteins and Granny Smiths. Red delicious just starting but looking OK but the gala very light on. Good blossom on the pears.
unfortuntely the new peaches have bad curl leaf – they got missed when the copper sprays were done!
