What do you have to spray your fruit trees for?

I broke down this year and bought Lime-Sulphur fungicide - the curly leaf is killing the nectarine and peach tree - took most of the fruit last year.

Well, that should keep you busy until Tuesday, at least.

D is the fruit tree person, but I think it's the same thing. The trees are little babies (only planted them last spring) so they need TLC. The giant old apple needs some help too.

We really need to start advertising down home vacations - complete with farm chore opportunities like sod turning and barn mucking! Some the stuff has been on our list since we got here, but it's coming along. can't wait to get the other barn half built and paint the house.

No wonder you're so scarce today. :D

Love the 'dog's life' pictures too, they are so cute.

Fruit trees down here--the orange tree has held up okay since it is in a very protected location. I hope the cherries will be good this year, as they like to have a certain number of cold hours and this year they certainly got them!

I've never had any success controlling peach leaf curl, so if you have that problem--good luck!
