IMG_8004.JPG The first of the peaches and nectarines are coming into bloom, just in time for a dirty great big storm later in the week. We have very limited options to protect our blossom. I can spray a seaweed solution that helps the flower speed up the processes after the bees have visited. Some organic farmers spray a copper solution. Copper is a heavy metal and I do not want that in my soil. So I prefer the Zen approach. I think warm dry thoughts to encourage the bees to do their stuff and hope even after a rain that the flowers dry out quickly and no disease invades them.
