http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/08/06/NYC-heThe Weekly Gardening Thread is a weekly gathering of folks that love soil, seeds and plants of all kinds. From complete newbies that are looking to start that first potted plant, to gardeners with some acreage, to Master Gardener level and beyond, we would love to hear from you.
This thread is non-political, although you will find that most here are conservative folks. No matter what, you wont be flamed and the only dumb question is the one that isnt asked.
It is impossible to hijack the Weekly Gardening Thread ... there is no telling where it will go and that is part of the fun and interest. Jump in and join us!
NOTE: This is a once a week ping list. We do post to the thread during the week. Links to related articles and discussions which might be of interest are welcomed, so feel free to post them at any time.
It's been raining all day today and lots during the week. Hubby has not been able to work construction, so he's been busy harvesting during the temporary cessations of rain, and produce has been busy producing like there is not tomorrow.
Hope you are all well. Have a great weekend, and God Bless.
Glad you are getting rain, not so here in SE Texas.
Hi! Heading out for fish Fry.
I put some calcium on it and a little nitrogen, but they don't look any better. Help please!
Mmmm...fried fish. Hope you enjoy the dinner.
Pinging the list.
I don’t know how I managed to get Brietbart in there, and I don’t know if it’s possible to take it out. Please feel free to ignore it.LOL
I would send you some this week if I could.
We need rain, and it's been hot. We saw 109F one day this week. Supposed to be a chance of rain over the weekend, and we need it. Badly.
Pretty good year in SE Wisconsin. My Contender green bush beans barely survived getting chewed on by little white flying things. The Roma style flat green beans were not affected at all. All the other veggies are doing well.
This is a new one for us. :)
It's sitting on our kitchen counter at the moment, but I think my husband may be cooking it tonight.
Starting to pick about a tomato a day. Going to make stuffed jalapenos this weekend. This is definitely the summer of peppers. Weather here in west Michigan has been gorgeous, mid 70’s and a rainy day now and then. I have quite a few maybe a dozen or more tomatillos on my lone plant that I hand pollinated. Big fluffy green sacks hope there is something inside. Feeding a babyu tree sparrow my daughter brought home. We are taking turns. It’s county fair week and w2e do a lot of volunteering. Bird still has some wispy feathers on its head so we named it Don King. really looks like him. I do have pictures will probably wind up posting all my photos on one thread. Taking hubby to PT 3X a week he’s doing pretty good.
I will take whatever rain we can get from whomever wants to share.
Everything is doing well here in Western Washington state - corn and tomatoes ripening and we are buried in green beans.
I am not sure what is wrong not enough info. When I grow peppers in pots, I use the self watering kind, as well as a ceramic gizmo that holds a soda bottle of water that I can add water soluble fertilizer to according the package directions.
I also use a soiless mix so that my tendancy to overwater doesn’t lead to root rot.
Have you tested the ph, and nutrients? Are you watering too much or too little? Are you watering overhead? Have you taken a magnifying glass to look closely at them and the under side of the leaves?
Have you checked the roots of one of the plants to see if there is anything amiss?
Our green beans are just about done for, but it’s time to plant the fall crop.
“Glad you are getting rain, not so here in SE Texas.”
Conroe has 30% chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday and 40% on Monday.
Look up Curly Top Virus.
Other than that I have no clue.
