  • 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.

  • Barnacles on plants are lichens

    Have you ever gotten blamed for something you haven’t done?  Most of us have experienced this and it is a dreadful feeling.  Well, there are a great many things we blame erroneously on one thing or another, and lichens are one of them. Lichens, often described as barnacles by worried gardeners, usually show up on woody plants after some sort of thinning or decline has occurred.  They are not the problem only the result of a change in the plant’s environment.
