Last week I was in Verona and gave a talk on Fruit Crops for North Mississippi at the Northern Mississippi Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association annual conference. The weather was cold, but the crowd inside was good. Lots of interest and excitement about all kinds of fruit and vegetable related topics. Below is a photo of Dr. Blake Layton, MSU Extension Entomologist, addressing the crowd.
Although I didn’t get a photo with me speaking (should I have done a selfie?) my presentation is available for download at the link below as a PDF.
UPDATE: After posting this I was chastised by Dr. John Clark at the University of Arkansas for not listing the UA peach and nectarine varieties. My reply was that they were untested in N. MS so I didn’t know for sure how they would perform. He thought they would do well in that area. So, this link: http://www.aragriculture.org/horticulture/fruits_nuts/nectarine_peach/default.htm will describe them and offer nurseries where to obtain them.
