This event, Jan 18-20, should be a good one! One day for apples, one day for pears, one day for stone fruit. Held in Wenatchee Washington, prime fruit growing location. Free registration for webinar.
As an oldster, I’m amazed that I figured out how to zoom. But for you youngsters…is there a way to capture/keep/record the webinar for future viewing or do you have to watch as it happens?
