I love convention season. I think it's fun to see seeds sales reps and our Buying Club box vendor and our apple tree suppliers to say Hi!
It's a great way to network and learn a few new things. For example one of the certified organic pesticides we use has never really worked well. I actually hate the product. So I asked the rep about it. He said do you know the pH of your water? Weird question I thought. But alas if they pH of your water isn't in a certain range the product will have less efficacy. Ahhh learning.
The MidAtlantic Fruit and Vegetable Growers convention was my first meeting of the season. In a few days I head off to my next convention so stay tuned for pictures!
Here's some shots from the MidAtlantic show:
