Life on the lake…..ahhh. Even though I am (really, I am) working.
Yet another pest to keep an eye out for. Pepper weevil. We don’t have too many greenhouse pepper growers in NYS that I know of but it is a pest in the greenhouse pepper industry in Leamington ON – not that far away.

Lettuce be clear – growing greenhouse greens year ‘round requires lots of environmental monitoring. A nice article with information from Neil Mattson.
Do the dew! Learn how to calculate a dew point and how it might affect disease incidence in your greenhouse. An article and a webinar Sept 8. (I hadn’t hear of Upstart University which is online and for profit but might have some good information.)
How often do you hear this question: Are you keeping your bumblebees cool enough? Learn how to answer it.
