March 2015 (4)

Using a spacer to keep the self adhesive copper tape in line with the rail above it.

The pest exclusion frame's bottom rail is fitted first and then the rest of the frame will be built on top of it.  The rails at both ends have to come back off for painting.

Its autumn here and the sun is losing its power and the days are getting shorter.  Once again, the practice of summer pruning and fruit thinning is paying off.  These apples are still growing strongly.

This one is the biggest Granny Smith on the tree, but they are all of a generous size.
