Do you girdle in Oct. prior to fruit set for the OFF year- correct?

Yeah, in the fall, you can girdle to increase fruit set in an off-year on those girdled branches. It's not good to do more than one or two branches per year, because the photosynthate from the canopy needs to continue to feed the roots.
