Seeing "Blue" berries and Field Day Reminder

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

I was in the Debert area today and took this picture of ripe blueberries.  This is a reminder to get your blueberry maggot fly traps into the fields.  Once you start to see ripe berries the traps need to go out.

You will also notice the weed in the picture.  It is fairy common annual weed "Hemp nettle".
It has pink flowers and very hairy leaves and stems.

You can get blueberry maggot fly traps from the WBPANS office in Debert

WBPANS Field Day Reminder - It will be held again this year at the Institute in Debert (168 Dakota Rd.) on Saturday, July 21st. (9:00am - 4:00pm)
