  • The garden is languishing this year but ironically there is one perennial problem that doesn’t seem to be bothering my squash and zucchini: the squash vine borer.   The early summer rains stunted my yellow squash; my Romanesco zucchini ‘Gadzukes’ is really the only variety producing and there seem to be no signs of wilt on the horizon!

  • The other day I got a letter from a Mark Gould of Southampton, New Jersey.

  • Everyone is talking about what a terrible season it has been for vegetable farming.
    My garden is growing weeds while the onions rot and the tomatoes languish on the vine. The rain has made for soggy ground that starves annual plants of oxygen.  
    So what are we to do?  
    First and foremost this is a reminder of how important it is to build soil year after year to ensure good drainage for plants that would otherwise be starved of oxygen if they are trapped in soggy, clayey soils.  
    The rest is lies in our cultural practices.

  • It seems we have experienced flooding this summer that has impacted nearly every county in the state. These floods have raised questions on how to deal with vegetable gardens that have been covered with flood water.
