…fool me twice…shame on…YOU!

…last year friends of ours had a horrific tent caterpillar infestation that totally defoliated their plants and ate their berries…

…we were at their place on sunday and were asked why there was precious-little fruit on their plants…next to nothing…


…it’s because haskap sets its fruit the year before and those fruit sets were eaten off by the caterpillars…LAST year…

…so they not only eat one year when they invade…but the fruit from the second year as well…
