I only have a handful of apples this year and maybe it would be best to bag them as the article advised on the tree. How do I go about doing this? with a regular baggie and some string to tie it tight? I didn't get my spraying done early enough this spring and I usually can't keep up with spraying b/c of all of our wind! thanks for your reply. ellen

I have been using ziplock sandwich baggies. I zip the closure around the stem. There are photos of how I do it in the other article linked to this one.

This year I am also going to be trying these: http://www.raintreenursery.com/catalog/productdetails.cfm?ProductID=T165

Start bagging when the apples are no more than an inch - I thin them at the same time.
