Midwest Fruit IPM

WE have wrapped up the final 3 days of the Midwest Fruit IPM (integrated pest management) class that I have been involved in since the first part of January.  This week was in Door County Wisconsin.  It has been a whole new experience for m to learn about growing fruit.  Door County is a wonderful place that is heavy on agro-tourism.  There are a number of wineries that offer wine tasting.  The orchards all seem to have some sort of activity for the kids.  On my own time I have visited a dairy that makes their own ice cream.  The scenery is sort of classic agriculture and the crops are much more diverse than mid-Illinois.  I will offer details of the experience next week.
