Yes, limbs can break or become so loaded you're sure they will. You'll
regret it in August if you don't.
You can thin as you drink your morning beverage, a little every day, for a
few weeks or so or however you prefer to do it.
Can't believe you're doing this already, we just had blossom drop not long
