Late summer, Time to enjoy your apples, grapes, and tomatoes !

Apple Orchard

After a long season of hard work and challenging weather, it is time to think about the harvest. The next few months farmers and growers will be preparing for the harvest, storing, and packaging of many fruits. Some of the most common, yet not necessarily the easiest, of these fruits are apples, grapes, and tomatoes, among many others. Professionals and amateurs alike learn how to judge the perfect time to pick, how to store, and better techniques for their harvest each year.

Are critters eating your garden? With your garden in full swing of production, the last problem you want to have is an animal destroying or eating the produce that you have been waiting all summer to harvest. These animals may not only be eating your produce but also the entire plant. If you find yourself facing this problem, you are in luck because there are animal repellents that can help.
