Lots of work this week, getting ready for spring.
I sprayed down the dormant fruit trees with copper sulfate, to help keep peach curl and blight away. The mixture also has an insecticide in it, to kill overwintering insects. This is the first year I am trying this, mostly because I don't like using chemicals on my trees, but the peach and nectarine trees have been getting progressively worse cases of curl, resulting in NO fruit last year, and it was either treat them or destroy them

Morning exercises, breakfast to all, off to work, stopping off at the library to return some books. At work, I've got a meeting in the morning, after which I will get that last report from TN written. After work, back home, switch cars, then make a run to the dump to get rid of some clutter! Back home, dinner to all, work on some of my hobbies, read a bit, write in my journal, and call it a good day!
