Thanks for the advice.  Maybe I can do better this year.  It's a shame to
see the fruit go to waste, even though the trees are mainly for ornamental
purposes.  We've got three pears, two cherries, two peaches, a nectarine and
an apple, all dwarf or miniature.  Brown rot got all the peaches and
nectarines the last two year.  The pears and cherries are still young and
haven't set fruit to worry about yet.
