More newer stuff

Today at the Master Gardener Plant diagnostic specialist tour we saw a few more non normal, newer sightings.  We found grape leaves with the fairly common but unique erinium mite which causes a bump on the top of the grape leaf, and the under portion is a white or brown fuzz.  The very small mite is under the fuzz.

On a quince tree, we saw what looked alike a very possible fire blight on a quince.  Fire blight is NOT suppose to be here so we will need to have it ID'ed at OSU.

The oaks  leaves  in the Veneta area are turning red and brown.  Upon closer look, there are small leaf galls in high numbers on the leaves.  The hot 100 degree weather has caused the oak galls areas to turn reddish brown.
