Care for your deciduous fruit trees

A must do now for your deciduous fruit trees is to spray them with copper oxychloride at bud swell if in doubt if it is the perfect time you can do this weekly over a three to four week period.  We are spraying the trees to help prevent leaf curl, brown rot and black spot.  The healthier your trees the better to help with other problems and fruit fly.

  • Potatoes thrive in well-drained, loose soil.
  • Potatoes need consistent moisture, so water regularly when tubers start to form.
  • Hilling should be done before the potato plants bloom, when the plant is about 6 inches tall. Hoe the dirt up around the base of the plant in order to cover the root as well as to support the plant.
  • Bury them in loose soil. The idea is to keep the potato from getting sunburned, in which case they turn green and will taste bitter.
  • You will need to hill potatoes every couple of weeks to protect your crop.
