My post for Sunday in My City has been brought to you courtesy of scale. Yes, I thought we had beaten it last year when I helped trim back my neighbor's hedges and sprayed them this spring. Apparently it's not that easy. Like a horror movie villain, scale has reared it's ugly head on the other side of our lawn. Yup, infected a fruit tree. So I spent today cutting it back. Next week, I will be clipping the tree all the way to the ground. With a couple of sprayings, perhaps it will be the last we see of this villain. Think Halloween 20, oh, wait, then Rob Zombie did the remakes. Hum. Hopefully, fiction will be stranger than life.
