  • the pears are delicious!
  • next year: how can we prevent people from picking fruit before its ripe?
  • throw away any apples found on the ground (this prevents plum curculio from lingering in the garden and re-infecting)
  • Japanese plum (toki?) won’t produce fruit in our climate. It’s becoming so big it’s shading out other garden areas. Monica will see if Sean Gere can take this tree down. (It’s really big so we don’t necessarily want gardeners trying to do it.)
  • Protect figs for the winter with wire circles filled with hay. add this to closing day task.
