 The seasons seemed to fly by and the winter extension season is looming, as is the full arrival of winter and all of the associated fun that comes with both of them. Welcome to another edition of Hort Snacks, for all your information needs (well, most of them).

In this edition, as suggested you’ll see a diverse list of extension events for you to choose from, whether you want to travel to a conference or event somewhere within Canada or North America, or whether you want to take in a webinar from the comfort of your desk (live or recorded). There are lots to choose from, depending on your needs. Even if all of the details of every event aren’t specifically listed, you can always visit Alberta Agriculture and Forestry’s Coming Events listings to get up-to-date event information and posters, as well as registration information if applicable.

Also contained within this edition are some articles on managing pests. Pulled from the archives and dusted off (with a bit of an update) is an article on managing some of the problem vertebrate pests that are common in horticulture crops. There is also an article comparing the two types of potato scab, as well as an article on a novel insect pest of willows.

As the year comes to an end, planning is underway for the next year of Hort Snacks, including written articles, as well as items that will be delivered electronically through social media and the internet (such as videos, tweets, etc.). We hope to expand our offering of short video factsheets and try and reach more people in more ways. If you have suggestions or ideas, feel free to send them along.
