Olives: Sad Story

Olives (Fruit Fly Damage) - Marin County  2014

The 2014 olive story is another one of total decimation by the olive fruit fly.

I guess that's it. I was following a weekly regimen of spraying in the early A.M. (spray approved for organic outcomes) but it clearly didn't work. I'm thinking that having just one tree is just a little bit dicey . . . something that is prescribed for an olive grove might not work for such a small sample.

Next year I'll probably try to prevent the tree from fruiting (supposedly you can do that).
