1. Congrats to Gail Savina and Ingela Wanerstrand who did a good job answering questions on KUOW this past week. Being live ain’t always easy to do, but they fielded questions nicely.
2. Remember to water. Especially newly planted trees and berries, shrubs or trees in containers. The heat will dry things out. Water.
3. Someday if you are up in the Mt. Vernon area you might drop by and look at the trees and berry bushes at the Mt. Vernon research center. On Saturday, August 18th, several speakers will be there as well talking on fruit-related subjects. I have mentioned the Master Gardeners, the Answer Line, Seattle tilth in previous blogs. The Mt. Vernon Research Center is just one more resource to help the backyard gardener.
