Mango is Mallika, first year. Will
Move in during the winter time is the plan. First year for my guava also, canít wait for some fruit.

Also, trying out kappa/tapioca this year as well!

my plants look like they're dying. The leaves are starting to shrivel and droop. Do you think I need to put some kind of shade over them? They are getting full sunlight. I water them good every evening.

How are you going to use the tapioca?

I have all citrus and loquat now but want probably try avocado this year. I have one more good spot in my back yard for a good sized tree so the avocado may work for me. I may try mango again I just donít want to deal with the winter protection.

This post could be called...LIFE IN A VEGATATIVE STATE. The kitchen is filling up with tomatoes, peppers, squash, collards, beans,cucumbers, egg plant, blueberries, carrots, kale, ...not sure I can think of everything. Wife is doing best she can to process but the input is exceeding the output. Class B problem as my buddy would say.

I have been trying to be nice and green and just use 7 dust powder and some squishing elimination on my squash bugs. Not the borers... I have six 18 squash plants, including spaghetti squash and they are not playing nice.. so after this rain shower or so we get this week, getting out the Bayer and spraying them.. Hope they hold off on their damage...

Does anyone use blossom or tomato set spray for tomatoes, eggplant, etc? Your thoughts?

Most of everything is coming back. I picked the first squash today. It really set the tomatoes and peppers back. I didnít think that they would survive. It killed all of the beans and lettuces.

Not sure how the corn will work out... Last week's storms beat it up pretty bad with the wind that preceded the rain... This is right as the wind/storm was blowing in... it lasted for probably 45 minutes...

Garden experts... I have lots of room between my rows in my garden. I know I should till the weeds.. but.. I was wondering could I spray week killer on them and be done, rather than spend the time tilling, or will that contaminate my soil?

Not an expert, but I wouldnt spray. Probably ok, but thats just me. I have been using a heavy layer of hay this season and litterally have no weeds in between the rows. Only closer to the plants where the hay isnt as thick.

As Part Timer stated above, you want to use a deep mulch system between your rows to keep the weeds down. Weed killer will contaminate your soil. I started using the Ruth Stout garden method, using straw that is about 4"-6" thick to begin throughout the garden. Not only does it keep the weeks down, but keeps moisture in. Even with this extreme heat, I'm only watering 2 times a week and plants are still going strong. I started a YouTube channel this year about our family Getting Outdoors and have been putting up videos about the garden. Check it out if you get the chance. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ2..._as=subscriber

Anybody use shredded paper for mulch as opposed to hay or straw? The family gives me their paper shreddings and I use it to line chicken coop boxes....but... its stacking up and Id like to use it for mulching 1st year fruit trees and grapevines. Any major drawbacks?

I don't see a problem with that. I've heard you should avoid colored paper, or paper that is "shiny". But if it is regular printer paper or newspaper, I'd say no worries.

No weed killer here, just mulch. Only okra, peppers, watermelon, and Juliets(tomatos) left for me at this point. Trying to keep everything from burning to a crisp! You know it's hot when okra is struggling, lol...

Similar to this ...we have been putting all our grass clippings straight into the garden this year instead of the mulch bin. Best decision I have ever made for the same reasons mentioned above. We have a big front and back yard so we get a LOT of clippings every weekend.

I started some squash about a month ago. Pulled first two today. Watermelons and peppers are going nuts. Other than some lettuce and what's already planted I'm gonna let mine rest this fall. I'll plant some onions and garlic later on but not going full tilt on the fall garden this year.

What do y’all plant for fall gardens and when? I’m near the San Antonio area. We have a huge area for a garden so we can plant pretty much anything.

I started my fall garden yesterday. Too early for sure but seed is cheap. I planted squash, bush beans and kale. Later in September I'll crank it up with all the greens, lettuces, broccoli , cauliflower, chard, carrots, spinach, kohlrabi, cabbages, garlic in October, ...thats what I can think of now. I love to experiment and plant anything that might grow.

I've been amending the soil with compost and piling the hay on for the last few weeks preparing for fall planting. Rough when it's 100' but I'm ready.

Tomatoes, peppers, squash, beans, egg plant ,cucumbers, okra, all still doing really well.

I need to get my rear in gear if I want any kind of garden. Been so busy keeping the road hot between BCS and POC that I cannot see straight.

What would everyone recommend for a garden with a pH of neutral+, 80% sun, and little water? I know, weeds...
