spreading netting

waxwings arrived today in number…i bagan netting our haskap…netting is more of a deterrent than something that absolutely prohibits birds from eating berries…they are welcome to eat…they are migratory grazers…they leave our orchard in a week…with so many plants we leave some unnetted…that attracts them away from the netted plants…

…it’s cool out today…11C (46F)…but it is humid…any shirty or jacket is just too much for me…netting goes quickly…dragged out of their numbered storage bins that correspond with their row…opened as you go…laying them on the bushes…to be fastened down and together tomorrow…we will move on to the newer part of the orchard with less mature plants…
