Fruit Bags

I have no idea why I never thought of this, or not ever heard of this, but somehow I learned about it the other day. 

They are fruit bags you put over your tree fruit, to keep birds and bugs off of them.  I just covered a lot of apples, but may get the ladder out there and get more covered up.  I am also hanging garlic around the bottom of the branches to keep deer and raccoons out of trees.  

I'll be sure to let you know if they work.  They even have bags for your grapes.  I may have to put our grapes in next year.  The last ones were ruined, and I can't remember why.  Maybe a drought and we just couldn't keep up?  Anyway, I learned something new.

Interesting, while stationed in South Korea I saw the Korean families putting paper bags over the young Asian Pears. The price for perfect unblemished pears was amazingly high.

Where did you get these?

Also I've found planting garlic around my apple trees so far two plus years has kept deer off my trees. Maybe the winter wasn't too bad the last two years, time will tell.

But I dug up some nice garlic blubs from it so a win.

Michael, I found them on Amazon. Not sure where else they would sell them. I was reading an article and learned about them. They sell many sizes online. I have never seen them in local stores in our area. That is good to know about the garlic. Will have to plant some this fall.
