 Welcome to another edition of Hort Snacks. This month’s newsletter is brought to you by the letter “W”, with wild, warm and wacky weather well represented this past month. We’ve gone from sweltering heat to much more mild temperatures, all in the space of days. Hopefully, frosts will hold off for a bit longer, or those that happened were reasonably mild and we can still get a bit more growth. A bit of rain wouldn’t go amiss pretty much anywhere in the province. And the smoky air could leave any time. And those are my wishes.

In this edition, you’ll find a few bits and pieces of information on new programs, extension events looming in the future, and other things to get you thinking. There is an article on some of the potential roles that farmers might take in educating the public, as well as some thoughts by various people on the same topic. You’ll also find a bit of info on some home invading insects and some post-harvest injury problems (in the hopes that you can avoid them before they occur).

As you head into the home stretch for harvest (some of you have a long way to go), be safe, be careful and enjoy the benefits of working in such a great industry. If you want to drop a note on progress or to sum up your season when you finish up, feel free. As always, if you have ideas/thoughts on content for the newsletter, I’d welcome the input.

Rob Spencer, Commercial Horticulture Specialist
