The Apple Maggot Flies are here!
Lots of fruit on the trees. Some could use thinning.. A sign was posted to encourage people to pick up the fallen apples.
The star performer of the work party was a five year old, but we learned a lot from chatting with Don about the various pest management measures, like the traps he put up, but also things we could do in future.
seems a bit daunting to improve the quality of fruit in the orchard, but very possible if we perservere in involving more people and learning more as we go.
