In our mini orchard we have over 20 fruit trees and vines of various varieties, it's fun to observe their annual cycle and we get especially excited when buds turn to small fruits and we watch their progress as they mature and become ready for picking. We have recently been watching our stone fruit and apples.

We know how to outsmart those birds so we had netted the apple tree that had the most fruit. Mr Geniaus went out on Sunday to find that a bird had gotten under the net and was having a great old feast. He adjusted the net and came inside quite satisfied. Those birds just can't be beaten, yesterday Mr Geniaus went out to find more birds having a picnic through and under his net.
He was able to salvage four small apples.
