CEDAR APPLE RUST
Several years ago we planted two apple trees
In our little back yard
Where an old cedar
Is covered in bright orange galls
That you only notice
When it rains
This rust is passed
Back and forth
Between the two species
wreaking havoc on both
To treat organically,
You spray once the blossoms have set
This has effect only on the next years apples
And I always forget to spray
When the darn trees are in bloom
Not to mention the aphid Infestation
That i noticed weeks ago
And that is that.
No apples for us.
Are any of you as lazy as I am in the garden?
