 As summer rolls into fall, the warm days and cool nights are producing some sweet produce. Things are ripening nicely out there, and with the start of fall, here is a new edition of Hort Snacks to get you started.

In this edition, you will find a visible uptick in the number of conferences and workshops that are being offered, as extension season gets started. You’ll see that there are lots of webinars, workshops and other events to keep you busy and educated on a wide variety of topics.

Each year, we attend a number of conferences, tours and workshops in Alberta, Canada and the USA and we try and report on some of the things that we see, learn and hear about, with you. In August, the North American Strawberry Growers Association (NASGA) held their annual summer bus tour in Minnesota, so you’ll find the report on that trip in this edition. Hopefully there are will be a few nuggets of information that you can think about using yourself. You’ll also find information on a few different disease and insect pests, as usual, to gross you out, interest you or keep you aware of the problems that can pop up in your crops.

As you head into wrapping up harvest, feel free to send us a note about your season and how things went. We are happy to hear about things that went well and things that could use some fixing.
