I noticed the birds seemed to be sampling my unripe peaches so I threw some bird netting over them. The sampling has stopped, but they’ve now started to grow through the net.
Should I just not worry about it and remove the net once they drop their leaves, or am I going about this wrong? Perhaps I should be resetting the net every couple weeks to avoid new growth poking through?
My main concern is the leaves bunching up in the ~ 0.5 inch squares; seems like it’s ripe for excess moisture/humidity along those points.
My peach trees are new dwarfs with only ~20-30 peaches each so I’ve even considered throwing organza bags over all of them . Seems like a heck of a lot of work still, and I’d imagine others have a smarter way
