Apple Bagging at Frogtown Gardens

July 5, 2012

On June 21st, Fruits of the City visited Frogtown Gardens to lead a hands-on class on apple bagging. We discussed common pests and diseases, techniques for prevention, as well as fruit thinning and pruning. We bagged dozens of apples using two techniques: plastic zip bags and nylon bags. We’ll be revisiting this tree in a few weeks to see the difference apple bagging made in preventing common pests such as apple maggot. We’ll also be able to see which of the two techniques worked best. Stay tuned!

To learn more about apple bagging, please see this great video that Frogtown Gardens put together:
