  • Small ears may mean poor pollination

    Small stalks, small ears, poor kernel development …  does this describe your corn crop this year? Or maybe the raccoons absconded with the crop.
    If this sounds like your garden, there may be several factors at work. Drought at the wrong time can stunt your corn crop; cold damage can stunt corn (if you put your crop out early you could see a little stunting from a late spring cold snap); and poor drainage and poor soil fertility, especially nitrogen, can stunt the crop as well.

  • Curing onions, garlic and potatoes for storage

    My tops are beginning to flop. On my onions, that is. So it is getting close to the harvest. In fact just about all of my storage crops are about ready.  
    Potatoes, garlic and onions:  these tree vegetables are staples worldwide partly because of their versatility and partly because of their storage-ability.  
    Late July and August is when our spring-planted onions, garlic and potatoes reach maturity and are ready for harvest.
