Orchard,  Spraying


Spent the weekend getting the orchard sprayed.  Waited maybe just a week too long.  A good number of the trees were budding.  No tractor and no lime sulfur – dormant oil.  Switched over to a back pack sprayer and a Linseed Oil / Fish Oil product.  Should be mild enough to get the job done without burning the delicate buds.  The big problem is the smell.  Now the sulfur was one thing but concentrated fish is… well… stinky.  Yes I wore protective gear but this is fish smell.  I managed to shower, soak in the hot tub and most of it went away.  But I’m pretty sure I need to change the water in my hot tub now.
