  • It has not been a very forgiving summer when it comes to the heat, but what is of more concern to us now is the lack of rain. 

    Some are in the throes of a severe drought, others threatened soon to be put on the list.  If you are among them, I hope you have started to water because we are seeing some unfavorable conditions for newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials.

  • Since 2006 I have been bringing my personal tomato trials (and tribulations) to my readers. 

    It is a good way to assess the season and the growing selection of heirloom varieties available to us. Sadly, this year was sort of a bust for the vast majority of what I planted.

    I’ll start with the good news. By far, the winners this year are Marglobe, Black Prince and Roma. Both are still clean, producing fruit and ripening efficiently despite the heat (although the last ripe flush did occur when we had a run of days in the 80’s).
