Fruit Set October 26th

It has been a cold and wet spring, still getting the odd light frost in the gullies. Lots of westerly wind patterns I don't think that it has been above 24 C yet this spring. I think that we are damn lucky to have a crop on the trees this season.

Mark worked a small crew on the thinning this season.

Will be a late start to the harvest maybe the first weekend in November. Just guessing. A start is one thing, but a good harvest throughout the season on all fruit is the goal. 
Best wishes to all.
