Summertime Garden Tips

Summertime tips for garden success:

Be vigilant, the army worms and other pests are about!
They can be treated with BT available at Hester and Zipperer, or Captain Jacks Bug Juice available at Herb Creek. Both need to be reapplied after rain/ watering.  Neem oil is a good organic alternative.

To those who have sweet corn, the first farmer has been robbed by the squirrels! If your corn looks ready, pick it otherwise the squirrels will!

As always, keep your garden free of weeds and diseased debris, this can be a breeding ground for pests and more disease.

Lastly, feed your plants as needed. Frequent watering causes the nutrients to leech through the soil.

Keeping our gardens clean!

Our shed is cleaned up and looks downright spiffy.  Let’s keep it that way.  It is so important to clean any tools thoroughly with water before returning to the shed to prevent nematodes and germs from spreading to gardens.  We appreciate your help with this!
