    Hi ClissAT, starting to feel like Winter now after a warm Autumn. Just picked the last late tomatoes and rockmelon today.
    It’s only my 2nd year here after years spoilt in tropical/coastal areas so taking some adjusting back to frosty mountains. Love it though.
    How’s Pomona treating you?

    Being close to the coast, its still nice weather here.
    My tomatoes are in full production but yesterday I had to give in and spray everything with copper due to the ongoing moist weather. Being in the Mary valley means morning fogs then warm days which is always a good recipe for fungal and viral plant diseases.
    Fruit flies are back on the job already which means I didn't get a break from them at all this past season.
    Peaches flowering already which is the sign to put out fruit fly baits.
    That usually doesn't happen until late June, early July.
    For the last few years the flowering of most fruits has come earlier each year.
    I also see my mangoes are ready to send up flower spikes too. This means ripe mangoes again for this coming Christmas.
    And it also means most of the fruit will ripen before the crows breed which is a good thing as in my area they are the biggest preditor to half grown fruit other than fruit fly.

    Hi Roni,

    my Grandmother's side of the family came from Crows Nest "Vonhoff" they owned a farm out at Groomsville. As a teenager, I used to ride my push bike out to the farm and stay a week or two at a time over school holidays helping with dairy farming.
