July’s Fruit Club Meeting, 7/19/18-Summer Fruits and Pest Controls

Happy July, Bainbridge Island Fruit Club!

This month’s meeting will be on Summer Fruits and Pest Controls. …Right on time to save our wonderful fruits from those wiggly awful bugs!

The meeting will focus on the fruits of early summer (e.g., berries, cherries, peaches, and plums), with attendees encouraged to bring samples for tasting. Darren will also go over some of the best plum varieties for the Puget Sound area as well as common pests (large and small) that effect summer fruit and low-cost techniques for managing them.

Darren says he’s looking forward to this topic …because he has sort of specialized in testing various plum varieties to see what works and what doesn’t in our climate over the last 20 years. He already have some plums ripening…and with the warm weather coming up…we should have even more for our meeting. Yum.

  • Meeting Date – Thursday, July 19th
  • Location – Bainbridge Grange Hall at 10340 Madison Ave NE. Bainbridge Island, WA
  • Time – 6:30-8:30pm

We’d love to see you all there!
