Thanks
Yes, you need to add water but not to the top. You need a good air pocket between the top and water level.

My meat grinder. Saves time and still good consistency.

Anyone know what might be causing this on my cucumber plant?

Powdery or downy mildew. Most likely powdery, though.

Did you grow the serranos from seeds or buy plants? I purchased what were supposedly serranos plants but end up with some other type of pepper plant.

Plants from a local place. I did get a couple of jalapeño plants that turned out to be Tabasco peppers.

Random question for the green screen: I am helping my mom out with her garden. She planted 2 cucumbers, 2 crooked neck squash, and a few tomato plants in a very small area. The squash took off, as well as the cucumbers, but has not been able to harvest much. After further research and reading, she tells me that she thinks that she only has male(?) plants, and because of the lack of bees or other pollinating insects, her plants aren't getting pollinated. The reason that she's only getting tomatoes is that they are self-pollinating. Any suggestions on what she could do?

Do this right here for squash, zekes, and cukes...

For polinating 'maters, just take a small branch from the 'mater plant (for instance a sucker branch) that has a few leaves and just lightly "dust" the blooms to shake 'em a bit... this will polinate the plants more efficiently if you have a shortage of pollinating insects.

Cucumbers and squash have both male and female blossoms. You can take the male blossoms, peel off the outer leaves, and rub the stamen around the base of the inside of the female flower. You have to do this in early morning because that is when the flowers are open.

Tomatoes are self pollenating. You can shake them, use a vibrating toothbrush and vibrate the blooms, or do as described above. The toothbrush thing works pretty well because native bees (honey bees can't really pollenate them) use buzz pollination to get pollen from tomato blossoms.

I'm pretty lucky in that I have plenty of bees. I have just flicked the tomato blooms in the past with my finger with some success in down years. Plant some pollinators. Cilantro is great for attracting bees! It's usually blooming about the time cukes/tomatoes are coming on in my part of the world and gets me started until the other flowers get going.

For sure. At my community garden plot, we have no problems, though my cucumbers aren't putting off much fruit. We have a pollinator garden for bees and butterflies and every plot (64 of them) has some kind of flower going. We let our cilantro go to flower and it got about 5' tall and their were multiple bees in it daily.

At my house, though we have plenty of polinators planted, we don't have nearly the number of bees. I am guessing that is from everyone using pesticides on their lawns and such. I hand polinated my squash pretty religiously and did all of the above techniques on my tomatoes.

My cukes are crazy this year. I have a 10ft row of picklers that are doing well. I have a 10ft row of straight 8's that aren't. They were all planted the same day and all of the plants look the same. Straight 8's are even blooming but not putting on. They are all in the same bed. Weirdest thing I've ever seen. Guess I'll go 'masturbate' them

Our straight 8's are what is frustrating us. They look robust and grow like gangbusters with blooms everywhere, but probably only half a dozen cukes.

I always planted Straight 8's, and they always did well. This year they are blooming like crazy, but not setting fruit.

Picked this one before the birds got to it. I'm pretty sure this is the biggest tomato that I've ever grown.

I guess I messed up planting bell peppers between my serranos and jalapeños. They’re quite a bit smaller than a normal bell and spicy as all get out! I’ve got a few bells comin in that are gettin to the size of a normal bell we’ll see if they’re the same. Wife wasn’t happy when she bit into that bell pepper lol. I’ve gotten 4 gallons of pickles a few gallons of okra, bunch of melons comin in, hole bunch of jalapeños and serranos and a ton of tomatoes out of our small garden this year.

This was my first year trying Bonnie's Sweet Million cherry tomatoes. That one plant makes enough cherry tomatoes to feed a family daily and give some away also. You could start a cherry tomatoe business with just 10 of these plants. I don't know what nuclear material they used to make this strain..but man does it produce!

Peeled all of these tomatoes and put them in the freezer. Will can them and make salsa when the plants quit.


Made 3 different batches of pepper sauce or whatever you want to call it.

Cacuzza growers...had a great last 2 months with my cacuzza plants. More than we could handle. Question: they all stopped producing 2 weeks ago but are still vining out like crazy. Are they done? If so i will yank and use this space for something new. Or will they produce again eventually?

My peppers are going great. Up to 100 harvested habaneros with over 100 still on the plant. Red savina and ghost peppers are coming along, and those plants are loaded. Today I bought a scorpion pepper plant just for...honestly i don’t know what the heck I was thinking. My boys and I tried one of the scorpions, and those are incredibly potent. We spit the pieces out after just a few seconds, but the heat was already on. Wow. Definitely to be handled with extreme care.

My summer kitchen is getting a workout this year. Tomatillos did good, despite the lack of rain, and all other veggies are pretty average, but we are putting stuff into jars.

They will eventually produce again. Ours did the same thing last year, when the heat really got going around mid June. Around mid july they were back up and producing like crazy. This year we have had more consistent harvests, but we planted in 2 separate beds.

Mrs is the real gardening whiz.

She has cucumbers, squash, and zucchini every day. She’s growing the round type zucchini here, it’s different looking, but equally tasty.

She’s putting up pickles every couple of days

The watermelon and cantaloupe are taking over the garden. I’m looking forward to them.


Her tomatoes are pretty tasty, okra too; and yesterday she harvested her first two eggplants.

Brussel sprouts are growing. Pepers too.






I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...
