First of all, i'd like to welcome 2 new followers of the blog! To be "followed" is really cool!
Now. Let's talk gardening stuff! I'm really surprised that people think my cabbage looks great, because I walk out to the garden each day, and think "hmm...the fall garden looked much better than this one". Regardless though...Thanks for the compliments!
What else? Let's see...the roma plant with the really yellow blotches on the leaves has had some epsom salt added around it, in hopes that it might be deficient of magnesium just a little. That's the only thing I could come up with, because none of the foliar disease pictures I've seen look anything like these.
Thanks to a reader named greenscape, I have a totally different outlook on the term "self watering container" now. I always listen to others' thoughts and opinions about a subject that is somewhat new to me, but remain very analytical as well. Thanks, dude.
The wind from the various storm systems coming thru here, is bending the corn over just a little. This, of course - would be the 16 stalks in the earthtainer scrap pieces, that are located at the edge of the woods. Looks like i'll be supporting them very soon!
Oh! I almost forgot.....Small blackberries have already formed on the wild plants next to the property. In 2-3 weeks, i'll take the video camera out there, and show you the bounty for the taking! Woo Hoo! This year will be all about blackberries, blueberries, and muscadine grapes.
The tomato plants are growing like crazy, and I have already extended the cages for the (hopefully) massive plants. They haven't reached the top of the first cage....I just like to always be prepared. Ha!
Lastly, I just noticed that it's gonna be 45 degrees one night next week...Is that not crazy? No biggie, but I bet it will slow down the growth of everything for a while.
Have a great weekend!
