Famous for being vineyard owners’ #1 enemy, downy mildew is a constant threat to grape harvests. This blight also threatens certain other vegetables from the vegetable patch such as tomatoes and potatoes, too.
Powdery mildew is a fungus that belongs to the Erysiphaceae family and frequently colonizes certain plants. This mold appears in the form of a light velvety white layer or white spots on leaves, which is what makes it immediately recognizable.
The bug often called “cherry fruit fly” is a tiny fly that lays eggs on ripening cherries. It’s also called the “cherry maggot“. Generally, this happens end of May or beginning of June, and can last until July.
