• Brambles and viruses

    We gave up on the raspberries a couple of years ago, the fruit was so perishable and the plants lacked vigor.
    We would cut the ‘Royalty’ raspberries all the way to the ground each year and forgo an early crop to manage disease but it didn’t seem to pay off.  
    It was never a total loss, but about half the canes would be dried up and diseased by now.

  • Bumper crop of squash not a sure thing

    You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash? Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away.
    I have a little bit of that problem this year and I give credit to the variety and the fact that it was plated later than usual. I also planted loads of it.
    Some, folks, however, may not be so blessed with a bumper crop.
    Some gardeners are being thwarted by squash vine borer, squash bugs and powdery mildew.
