Another day fertilising the trees and another hundred or so done. It was another bright sunny day but also cold so a nice job to do. Putting the pellets on the upper side of the tree gives you a chance to look at it and consider how you will prune it. "Trim that, lop that off, get rid of that branch entirely, clear those branches away".
All of which slows the process down to a very slow contemplative afternoon in the grove.
