Y...A...W....N..........Early AM Spraying
The view was stunning this morning as I walked down the hill, for my weekly organic spray for the olive fruit fly. I begin spraying when the pit first starts forming within the olive. This is done until harvest.
I spray the older olive bearing trees. but this morning as I turned back, it was great to see the trees we planted earlier this year, doing so well.
I walk up and down the rows, spraying every other tree, alternating each week. It is great exercise.
'Miga, my faithful companion, accompanies me. She loves being a farm dog!
We tag each tree that has olives.
Our granddaughter has two beautiful chickens who love the olive trees. They often greet me as I pass the trees.
It's a wonderful feeling to see our progress! These trees were planted in 2007.
