Seen at the Festival of the Tree

Urghhh!

Having bought my greasebands on Thursday, I have now used them for the purpose they're intended for - protecting my fruit trees against Winter Moth.

I really hate this job as I'm sure that more of the grease gets all over my hands than gets applied to the tree. I always manage to get the timing wrong too - after the allotment's water's been turned off for the winter, so I have to wait until I get home to get cleaned up.

This assumes I haven't stuck myself my clothes, to the shed or the car in the meantime. It's only visions of perfect fruit next year that helps to keep me going. Here's an example of the finished result - now try and crawl up that Mrs Moth!
