First Fungicide Application

Got the first application of fungicide down after last evenings fun with electronics. Not missing a spray this year after the black rot we had last year, given this will be our first commercial harvest! That said, I did make a hell of a mess with the sprayer. Apparently some water had settled in one of the hose fittings and froze, cracking the fitting. So one side of the lower half of the sprayer wasn't sending the mixture to the nozzles, but instead squirting it all over the sprayer. So now half of the sprayer is yellow. Lovely. Better order the part quick.
