  • We protect some of our plants from cold; why not protect them a bit from heat.  Sure, we can’t change the ambient air temperature on a 90 degree day, but we can keep our vegetables shaded on the hottest days of the summer with reasonable results.

    The vegetable garden can start doing some funny things during a heat wave. When temperatures start to raise into the upper 80s and 90s, many vegetables drop flowers before pollination and fruit set and stop blooming. Beans, tomatoes and eggplant do like it hot, but there is a threshold of tolerance to heat.

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, June 1896 - “The Bridge, Pleasant Street - Ali! What a place to dream. He who has never seen the sunlight shimmer upon the wimpling wave or the long shadows of evening stretching themselves from bank to bank, or the soft shimmering stars come out and mirror themselves in the depths below has never been touched by nature’s great heart throbs. From the heat and turmoil of the day we seek this spot.

  • If you have a garden, chances are you appreciate nature in all its glory. But, sometimes nature gets in the way of our desires to cultivate. Deer browsing, rabbit munching, squirrel digging, mole trenching and resident vole feasting have all come up in the last two weeks. While I have no silver bullet for any of these problems I do have some practical approaches to offset the shared feasting on our gardens.
