  • Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around. It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads; it likes humid and dry weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started. 

    The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection and placement and adopting good cultural practices. Most powdery mildew problems won’t do too much harm but some plants suffer decline if it is a repeat problem.

  • Have you ever considered the scape? The scape is the flower stalk of members of the allium family and for culinary purposes this includes onions, leeks, chives and garlic. 

    I had never considered using the scape of these plants until a visiting gardener recommended that I put my garlic plants on double duty.  She suggested a pesto recipe using the garlic scape instead of a leafy herb.

    Typically we remove the scape so all the bulb’s energy is spent on bulb development and not bloom; so using the scape in the process makes particular sense.

  • 10 years ago . . .

  • I have no complaints about plant performance this spring.  It was England-like with agreeable temperatures and ample rainfall, thus far. A few steamy days have managed to snap me back to summer in the Ohio valley reality. 

    Plants have preformed well and bloomed as they should here at the farm, but some gardeners continue to pose the question, “Where’s the bloom?”

  • 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.
