One always hopes for a sudden burst of energy immediately after picking the last fruit of the season. In odd moments, I have visions of placing the last mango in the cart and lunging for a saw in the same motion. Somehow the requisite burst didn't happen this year, but after several concerted efforts over many weeks, most of our trees are trimmed. With any luck, the inevitable new growth will have a chance to harden before cold weather hits.
