Get some water into the soil

Fair enough the trees aren't suffering but now is the time they are preparing for winter. They need a little help. Look at those stonefruit - they still have all those leaves available to convert sunlight into sugars that they'll store in their wood and roots. They need water to do that.

Water your fruit trees even though there's a prediction of rain. Any rain you get can serve to force the tapwater down into subsoil and keep the top sweet.

And speaking of the coming rain, get a little fruit tree fertiliser over their dripline. The next six weeks your deciduous trees should have the top foot of soil moist and full of nutrients. Evergreens won't mind it either. Your spring and summer should them be amazing.

And by the way
