Last week we were noticing some damping-off on our melons planted in the Meals Plus Harvest Garden which reminded me to check for current pest advisories on the Utah Pests website. The first small fruit and vegetable IPM pest advisory was released on April 22, 2016 and, just as they always have perfect timing, damping-off was one of the topics discussed. To sign-up for pest advisories and have timely tips automatically sent to your email (which I STRONGLY RECOMMEND you do), go to www.utahpests.usu.edu, click on IPM and then select IPM pest advisories. You can select tree fruit, small fruit and vegetable, turf, and landscape pest advisories – or select them all! Trust me, this is an essential tool for making the best management decisions in your garden and it’s a free service, whoohoo!
