This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

bagged apples

bagged apples 112

I looked around for some information on bagging my apples and pears. Here's an informative thread: It seems that plastic Ziploc bags are the way to go. Zip the baggie over the stem of apples about 3/4 inches in diameter and cut off the lowest corner of the bag so any water that gets in will drain.

I have 24 apples bagged now. Will do my 5 pears soon.

Good to know. Of course, I'll have to save that information for a much later date when my sad little fruit trees are actually producing fruit. ha ha. YAY for yours this year!!

Great idea! I look forward to future reports on how it works out. I just planted three fruit tree whips this year so I'll have to tuck this one away for the future as well.

The bags are a great idea. Will share it with my neighbor who's sharing his nectarines with the birds.
