i hope it passes you by!
pretty much rained all week this past week.
good thing i got some transplants done and a
few ground cover plants divided up and put in
place. looked at them today before i went for
a walk and they look ok.
Four of my most productive zukes lost about 1/3 of their leaves.
Everything else survived. Some of the tomato plants actually
had new flowers on them today. Go figure.
There is another freeze alert for Wednesday. Dang!
Question: do I cut off the damaged leaves or leave them on
with winter coming i doubt it makes that much
of a difference.
we have two nights of low 40s in the forecast
i suspect that will shut down the peppers.
gotta get out today to check them and see
what is ready to be picked.
yesterday i got the squash out of the patches.
around 160 - 200 of them, i gave up counting after
100. some are showing signs of rot in places with
all the rains we have had. and since more rain is
in the forecast i figured i would get them brought
in. we'll give a lot of them away. tonight i'll
start cutting up and cooking the ones that are
damaged or the stem fell off so as to not waste
what is usable from them.
but first gotta get the beans looked at for what
pods might be ready to pick. with more rains if
any are ready they'd start to rot on the plant in
the pod. as it is i'm wondering if any of what is
out there is any good. won't know until i go look...
looks like another beautiful day out there. :)
buried is what worms like. disease is just
nature's way of making sure we aren't smothered
by what she grows. things have a life cycle.
disease is a part of that. buried, the soil
microbes and the rest of the soil community
deal with it, turn it into humus.
crop rotation is good for many reasons. :)
