We shift our gardening tasks to: • filling in all of the holes in our garden beds (do not overcrowd your plants, they need room to grow) • watering & weeding • watching for pest and disease Apples, one of the Bitterroot's most iconic crops, are susceptible to codling moth. Treating for this pest is tricky, the time to treat the pest is directly connected to environmental conditions and is different every year.
