Apples in these parts can hardly be marketed as organic.
What a grave insult to the intelligence that would be!

In a bad year – one in which the months of April and May have predominantly high ambient atmospheric temperatures and commensurate humidity levels (leaving aside barometric pressure factors) – the spraying is nearly constant.

Give an ear and you can hear
The spewing over there;
Then quiver in your toxic fear
Of breathing dust from sprayer!

You’ll never find out what is sprayed
Or what it does to health;
As toxins on the trees are laid
To protect the orchardist’s wealth.
