Thanks Charlie! I used 6 ft cages on my tomato plants for the first time this season and that is the trick; gives them plenty of support to keep on going. I also use mushroom mulch straight from the Monterey Mushroom farm in Madisonville. GOOD STUFF! Your garden is looking real good. I might have to look into growing blackberries after slobbering over your blackberry cobbler pics!

We have more lettuce, Swiss chard, numerous varieties of kale, and red vein sorrel in the garden than salads we can eat. I think I will have to transplant seedlings next year instead of direct seeding, I went overboard this year.

I found three caterpillars eating my parsley yesterday. After I killed them I discovered they were swallowtails to be.

Oops

I'd rather have the swallowtails than the parsley.

Johnny, those dang blackberries are about the easiest thing we've ever planted! Got 2 rows about 80 feet long and my wife and daughter planted 2 MORE ROWS a couple weeks ago!! We're gettin' enough berries now for a truck farm. I don't have a clue what she's gonna do with all the berries next year!!

Hoped to pick the first celebrity tomato today and looks like something is getting it before I do. Also have a similar spot on a banana pepper as the green tomato. Name:  IMG_0760.jpg

Anyone have any advice? The tops of a few plants seem to be shriveling up and drying. Im afraid its leaf curl virus but I could be wrong. The rest of the plant seems to be doing well. Its neighbor has leaf roll...not sure why.

That doesnít look like leaf curl to me. It looks like they got dry on a really hot, sunny day and scorched the tips of leaves. Usually leaf curl will effect whole leaves before they dry out.

Well, most of the garden is a mess. I made the mistake of broadcast seeding my lettuce, kales, and chards... they came in WAY too thick. We are getting more salad than we could possibly eat, and the tomatoes arenít quite ready to harvest yet.





The pollinator garden I already posted above is definitely my favorite bed this year. I did a 4í X 60í bed on the back side of the yard, and the beneficial bugs have gone crazy, especially wasps... thereís dozens of species picking aphids off the garden this year.

Question for you guys - Everything in my garden seems to be doing well, but my squash and zucchini. I have four rows and all four have been slowly dying the last two weeks. I have not put any type of fertilizer on them at this time. Is there anything natural I can put on them? What is causing them to die? This question may have been asked and answered already.

Likely you have been invaded by the Squash Vine Borer. Look at the main stems and see if you can find small holes with "sawdust" looking residue around them. Also look on the leaves and higher up on the stems for little redish/brown "spots" or "dots"... Those are the eggs laid by the insect. These hatch and the larve (looks like a maggot or skinny grub worm). If they're not too far gone, they can be saved. Do a search on YouTube for treatment for squash-vine borers. It involves splitting the stems and removing the grubs, injecting the stems with a BT Solution and burying the stems above the infected areas to re-root and start to grow from there. I was about 75% successful with my wife's zucchini and squash plants last year... Here's a pic or two of her plant stems... First and last pics are of the recovering plants after treatment.

First time doing potatoes, think we dug them up a little too soon. The plants were wilted and falling over on the ground though. Dug up 7 of the 10 we planted. I'll let the other 3 go a few more weeks.

What can I plant in this heat that'll still produce? I'm going to have some more space in the raised beds soon because the aragula is getting too bitter in this heat, and the lettuce is starting to bolt.

Haven’t used a stake but last fall I put tomato cages around them trying to get them to grow straight up. Starts off ok but they eventually end up doing whatever they want.

Iíve had success growing okra & sweet potato in the intense summer heat. It may be too late this year to plant peanuts but something I want to give a try.

Pulled some onions today to cure.

My onion sets were slow this year, and the Swiss chard and lettuce got over top of them. So, only about half had decent sized bulbs.
With the lettuce and chard having a hard time, and not tasting as sweet, in this heat... Iím considering clearing the bed. Anything yíall would recommend planting this time of year that could make it through the summer?

As long as the fertilizer has calcium. I like the Miracle Gro Shake n Feed With Calcium for this application. You can usually buy it at any Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. The Epsom Salt Spray works too. After 1.5/2 weeks I'm already pulling Roma's and the situation seems to be under control.

Just be careful about introducing too much nitrogen. Any standard garden fertilizer with calcium should be fine.

Well, I finished up knockin' the weeds/grass back with the tiller and the wife made another harvest... This stuff is just now gettin' going and it's about to start makin' more work for (and as a result, me) that we bargained for! Sure looking good though! The gaps in the rows are left over from when the garden flooded in the early Spring and those were the surviving plants that and she never went back and filled in the gaps... Purple hull peas are beginning to put out some purple hulls ready for picking... just not quite enough to get a good picking yet...

Hows y'all gardens coming along?

Hogs really tore me up bad and i only have a few dozen stalks of corn left and TWO watermelons (that's IF they survive)

What can I plant now that'll let me salvage the summer?
What should I be looking to plant now or late summer to harvest in fall? Purple hull peas? Pumpkins? (I already planted two separate batches of pumpkins and both times hogs wiped them out)

Tomato question: I started from seed some heirloom tomatoes (about a dozen plants) and once planted in the garden I had some space left so got 2 more hybrid plants from the store. The hybrids are growing excellent and have produced a lot of tomatoes. The heirloom are growing and blooming just as good right next to the hybrids, but the blooms dry up and ZERO tomatoes on 12 plants. The plants are 5í tall now growing on a panel and not ONE tomato. Whatís the deal???

What you are seeing is ďhybrid vigorĒ. It is one of the main benefits to hybridizing plants. The F1 hybrid (or first generation offspring from separate distinct parentage) typically grows much faster than any true to seed offspring will. Also, heirlooms require a slightly more specific meeting of their nutritional needs. It seems most people are having problems with their heirloom tomatoes this year in my area. You could use a tomato specific fertilizer to increase fruit setting, and also make sure your heirlooms donít dry out between waterings.

Also, the hotter and more humid it is... the less fruit will set. Temps vary, but most heirloom varieties need at least a few hours of the day/night below about 75 in order for the flower to set fruit. Hybrids can typically push that up into the 80ís. Humidity plays a factor as well. High humidity can gum up the pollen and it wonít freely fall on the pistil.

Well what I thought were plants from heirlooms I planted last year turned out to be grape tomatoes from the compost. We have a ton! They’re okay but not near the flavor that the black krim and Cherokee purple have. I’m pretty have though, 5 tomatoe plants going crazy and 2 good cantaloupe vines and I didn’t plant any of it this spring

Well, burpless cukes, zucchini and squash are gettin' after it now!! My bride hauled 3 wagon loads out of the garden yesterday... They're all spread out in the floor now... Like an idiot, I went down the hallway/breezeway in the dark last night and took out a couple zucchinis...

I posted earlier in this thread something about if all those little yellow blooms turn into cukes n squash, she's gonna have 'em runnin' out her ears.... well, it's happenin'!!

Row of Thornless- Natchez
Thorned- Kiowa

Kiowa are sweeter and taste better in my opinion.

They look nice! We had a great floracane crop from our Prime Ark Freedom thornless and now the primacanes are blooming and beginning to make berries...

What kind of mango is that? I haven't had good luck with my mango due to the freeze the last two years. Been going back and forth on trying avocado and guava.
