Canker on an almond branch

Canker on an almond branch

This branch of the almond tree supported several twigs bearing great fat fruit (or should I say nut) buds.

But it looked like it had canker so I cut it off a little way below the scar.

It’s a no-brainer, really, losing a few dozen almonds in order to protect the whole tree from an insidious disease.

And yet it makes me feel sad and wasteful, as if I’d squandered the effort and energy of the tree because of a hunch.
