Weekly Gardening Thread

Good morning gardeners. JustaDumbBlonde has been very busy lately and asked me to post this weeks thread for her. She felt bad about not being able to respond to posts on last weeks thread.

I hope all of your gardens are doing well. My little 6 x 6 raised bed tomato patch is coming along fine. It has benefited from a couple of good rain showers in the last couple of weeks.

Photobucket">

This picture was taken at about 3:30 pm yesterday. The shade starts moving on to the tomato patch at about 3 pm and it gets full sun, 8 hours, up until then. I think the shade will be beneficial as the summer heats up.

Come on over and visit me at Beer Thirty (5:30 CDT) on the Homebrewing thread.

If you are a gardener or you are just starting out and are in need of advice or just encouragement please feel free to join in and enjoy the friendly discussion. Our Freeper community is full of gardeners, each with varying interests and skill levels from Master Gardener to novice.

>> I think the shade will be beneficial as the summer heats up.<<

Last year the only tomatoes that produced through fall were the ones I put a shade cloth over. I planted a total of 24 tomato plants last year. By July they were beginning to look pretty bad. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong but thought to try shading some of them to experiment. The six plants I put shade cloth over returned to healthy vibrant fruit bearing plants and those that were not covered pretty much died. Those that were covered produced well until the first frost. This year I’m covering them all. It was 60% shade cloth. I'm near Aiken, SC to give a perspective on latitude.

Good morning Red, my lettuce bolted and became bitter so I yanked out about ten plants. Last weekend I planted the rest of my raised beds with peas, beans, carrots, beets, celery, cucumbers and melons. Planted late this year, I hope everything does well in the soon to come heat.

Good morning Red, Your maters are looking good! Hope you had plenty of rain as we did, 5in last weekend and 6in Wed.

I have a problem on one of my tomatos, since I have only one sucessful tomato season under my belt, I do not know what the affliction is or what to do about it, but I do have a picture: Photobucket

Anybody had any experience with this stuff? I like the fact that you don't have to reapply every 30 days or whatever. So far this year, we haven't had too many problems (deer didn't eat the day lily buds before they bloomed); however, there was a big doe in the back yard last night & there has been some nibbling on the hostas so that signals the beginning of the deer "invasion".

Protect Plants with Sweeney’s Deer Repellent

Sweeney’s Deer Repellent is packaged in a patented, weather-proof container that is specially designed to allow the scent to escape but keep rain and other elements at bay. Homeowners simply stake the containers in the ground or hang them in shrubs four to eight feet apart throughout the desired protection area. There’s no messy mixing, spraying or reapplication necessary.

That could be damage from a bug feeding on the tomato, like a stink bug?

Thanks for the thread RD. Nice looking raised bed you have there. The only tomatoes that really produced anything last year for me also had shade.

May was unusually dry this year, so it looks like we are in for another long hot and dry summer. My tomatoes are doing well. Rest of the garden is doing well. I still have a final planting to do, but may cut that in half due to water concerns.

I only have about 30 gallons of water left in my rain barrels. Usually I have 3 or 4 - 30 gallon containers full going into July. So unless it rains, I will have to haul water if I plant all the beds.

May just throw out some clover seeds to use for soil improvement and forget some of the beds. We will get about 5 gallons a day sometimes 10 gallons from the air conditioner, when we turn it on.

This is the time I really miss lettuce. It has been so nice to just go out and collect enough for a salad each day, but the last lettuce was pulled a couple of weeks back after collecting seeds, which I will plant in the fall.

I have harvested all my garlic, and plan to plant more this fall. We have green onions out the wazoo, but we don’t use that many, so we are discussing whether to try and dehydrate them or not. We still have a lot of dehydrated green onion powder left over from last year.

Have a great weekend everyone. God Bless.

We got a nice rain shower this week here in Central Missouri. Not enough to catch us up, but better than nothing. We’ve had a whopping 1” at my place since the 5th of May.

I am clueless. By posting early I am hoping for an answer and a fix. We have a number of maters ripening so we are on eadge about this. The same thing was happening in Mobile to our maters when they were still green. I never got a ripe mater in Mobile.

Anway, I am off to Lowes for the last supplies to finish my long needed utility trailer re-flooring. Then I will have no excuse not to haul all of wife's landscape project materials! I am trying to get all of her projects up to date so that I can spend some time next year refinishing my old car.

Might need calcium.

Tomatoes are very sensitive to not getting enough calcium, which can be a problem if you gave acidic soil, that leaches the calcium away.

Sometimes wasps bite into a ripe tomato to cause that. There are two ways to fix that problem. One is Seven (7) dust,just sprinkle on veggies and leaves. Just be sure to wash them before eating. Second trick that I found was get them before the bugs do. Once they starting turning color, pull them off the vine and sit them in a window sill that gets some sun. Be careful though they, do ripen very quickly.Hope this helps

G’morning. The apple trees are growing. I had chipmunks get into the house and eat much of what I started early. Time to get the surviving plants planted. It is really dry this year. A big forest fire about 40 miles north of here.

That spot looks like a bug has been dining on your tomato. Nothing to worry about unless he’s got a bunch of friends.

Most of my garden is shaded but that doesn’t really help in 100 degree weather. Tomatoes, corn, onions and beans are doing fine. Lettuce and greens have bolted. Gave up on the squashes and pulled them up so the garden is looking bare already. Maybe I’ll try again for fall.

Tip - don’t throw out the spring onion tops. Chop and freeze them. It’s so easy to throw in a handful when cooking.

Was given a bag of little cling peaches so there are now 6 quarts of chunks in the freezer. The pits and skins yielded 6 half pints of peach butter and 7 half pints of jelly. Hubby sampled the foam and says the butter tastes like Christmas, yum!

Very nice looking raised bed.

Leveled and everything.

I built 2 more yesterday , but ran out of daylight before I could get them filled.

The promised rain slipped past us so I had to get out and water.

I have never heard of using pits and skins to make anything. Peach butter sounds really good. I wonder if the same could be done with mangos since HEB has ripe mangos right now.

Thanks so much from CA.

What’s going well: the new vines I planted and my Australian tree ferns.

What’s going poorly: my palm trees, stephanotis, and roses.

Rabbits are burrowing everywhere and stripping many of my plants. They come in from the common area and undeveloped areas near my place.

Finally picking plenty of green beans and pinto beans. We had ANOTHER rain recently & it has all but killed one of 3 tomato plants and several of the bell peppers. The anastazi beans are coming along, but not sure they will do as well as the pintos. Should be picking black-eyed peas in another 7-10 days and they are loaded. My favorite vegetable in the garden. Still getting massive quantities of squash, zucchini, and now cucumbers. I haven’t had a real problem with any pests so far, and I’m convinced it is all the toads in the garden. I know there are at least 4 grown ones and who knows how many babies. Found out they eat squash bugs and that’s just fine by me! There is also a HUGE wolf spider (named him Wolfie) in the cowpeas that I think will earn his keep as well.

I wouldn’t use mango skins. Mangos are cousins to poison ivy and the poison is in the skin. I found out the hard way. But any other fruit like apples and plums would be fine. Don’t use apricot pits because they have a poisonous substance inside but the skins are fine (most fruit pits/seeds have various levels of this substance but apricot is at the top of the list, ymmv).

Anyway, there is lots of fruit pulp and juice in the skins and pits/seeds after peeling so why waste it? Put all that in a pot with some water to get it going and cook it a while to get it mushy. Dump it into a colander or cheese cloth and let it drip into a bowl/pot for several hours. The clear juice won’t be as crystal clear as jelly made from the meat of the fruit but still clear enough for jelly. Then, discard the pits/seeds and mush the skins around the colander (aluminum sieve with pestle). This will give you the pulp to use for butter. Discard the used up skins. Use the same recipe for the butter as you used for the jelly except add some cinnamon, nutmeg and/or allspice.

“I have harvested all my garlic, and plan to plant more this fall.”

Most of my garlic from last Fall’s planting simply disappeared. Maybe as I dig up the ground I’ll find more cloves.

There are some really promising garlic to be harvested. But, don’t think I’ll be growing it again.

Really odd are two side by side tomotilla plants in 15 gallon pots. One drops lots of fruit.
The other produces nothing.

Wow, thanks for all that info. My wife makes jelly sometimes. We could make mango butter if we toss the skins and used the meat and pits, I suppose. Hmmm.....you have me thinking now.

I have two tomato plants that I didn’t separate because I wanted to see which would be stronger. Now they both look great and it breaks my heart to snap one off. If I pinch off the suckers, could I keep them both side by side?

I’ve never planted any garlic, but plan on it. Why do you say you won’t grow it again?

Mosrly due to frustration with this Spring's garden.

I planted my garlic last September in a small patch of my backyard garden. Watched it grow and thrive through our mild Winter, then watched the stalks simply disappear. Space could be better used for other stuff.

How much garlic does a two person household need? Just dug up some really good cloves to cure. Too much trouble.

Maybe I'll plant again, but not in my garden. Maybe in pots.

Last Spring and Fall I planted Waltham Squash, following a successful planting and harvest the season before, only to see vine borers destroy the plants. This year the vines are spreading and taking over the garden and already I have a dozen eight inch fruit. Go figure.

Point is, plant your garlic, and if your crop thrives, brag about it.

My strawberry patch has slowed down some. It never got to the “avalanche” stage like it did last year, I wore myself out picking some days but I was still able to keep it picked. Last year I couldn't. Now I'll get a steady trickle of berries until a good hard freeze stops them.

And, just in time for the strawberries to slow down, our raspberries are picking up! I picked about a cupfull yesterday. The main patch is red raspberries, but in the spot where my cherry bush died there's a black raspberry growing that's just covered in berries! Also some thicker, upright canes that I think might be blackberries but they don't have any fruit yet, and one mulberry sapling. I must have some very generous birds, because those are 3 of my favorite berries!

I got all the planting done on my land, and even managed to weed the “absentee garden” I have there. That's actually a pretty big step, because for years my shoulders have been too messed up to pull weeds, it would feel like I was ripping my own arm out of it's socket. But this year I could!! I haven't been able to talk for almost 10 months, and my stomach refuses to behave itself long enough for me to work at my old job, but the rest of me is getting stronger!
