Revisiting Pear and Plum Bagging
It's been a while since I've seen a discussion on plum and peach bagging and I wanted to check in to see what the current thinking is.
I have all my apples and pears bagged (in plastic) and was just starting to do my peaches and plums in cloth bags and was wondering if it was worth it. They take so long to put on compared to ziplocks, and I seem to have much more peaches and plums than apples, it seems like a daunting task. Add that to the fact that (for the most part) my peaches and plums will be done long before my apples, I wonder if I should not do any bagging and just spray?
What's the biggest benefit of peach and plum bagging? Bug protection or bird protection?
Do you bag every fruit on the tree or just some?
What's a good source of bags? It's been a while since I've bought any and I have a lot more fruit to deal with since my original purchase.
