I have actually managed to get myself organised this year. I may not have planted out enough summer crops. I may have forgotten to apply copper spray to my nectarine before it got leaf curl. I may have completely failed to keep citrus gall wasp away from my kaffir lime. But at least I’ve netted the blueberries before the berries got big, blue and ever so attractive to the annoy Myna birds that seem to be everywhere at the moment.
For the last two years (yes I’m a slow learner) I’ve had a lovely crop of berries vanish all of a sudden just before they were ripe enough to pick. Well, hopefully this year will be different. The berries haven’t turned blue yet but they have swollen up nicely so it shouldn’t be too much longer.
Hopefully the birds don’t see them through the netting. This lot has my name on it.
