  • Potatoes, garlic and onions:  these tree vegetables are staples worldwide partly because of their versatility and partly because of their storage-ability. Late July and August is when our spring planted onions, garlic and potatoes reach maturity and are ready for harvest. If you want to harvest some new potatoes, onions or garlic before they reach maturity enjoy them at the table in short order but if you want to store them it is important to harvest them at the correct time.

  • We have all asked the question “why hasn’t my plant bloomed?”

    Sometimes the answer is as simple as not enough sunlight, not old enough, not cold enough or hot enough, etc. 

    In fact, it could be as simple as a little digging and dividing for some renewed blooming attitude.

    For most of my herbaceous perennials I wait until early fall to do a good portion of my digging and dividing.

  • The insect world has countless sucking and chewing pests. One of the most difficult questions to answer, and I get asked it often, is “what’s eating my plant?”

    It could be a chewing beetle, or caterpillar; or it could be a sucking spider mite, bug or aphid, among many, many others. 

    Our early heat wave this summer added an additional component to the problem…many insects love this sort of disagreeable weather and can multiply more rapidly as a result.
