  • Sweet potato crops need 150 frost fee days

    Once again we enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall. I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods. Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive. We are down to about a dozen sweet potatoes; just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.

  • Age, fertility, two factors in blooming

    I have no complaints about plant performance this spring. But, it seems, some gardeners are still stumped by their under-performing plants.  
    Why plants fail to thrive is a hard question to answer, of course, because a great many things factor into poor performance, lack of bloom or die back.
    Too much rain, poorly drained soils or drought stress may mean death or die back for some plants; lack of vigor or bloom for others.
