  1. Today
  2. man that rain last nite sure was great to see. got not quite 1/2 inch...........take whatever i get at this point!!!!!!
  3. seen your pic in the outdoor news!!  looks like you're having fun!!!   

  4. Yesterday
  5. I hear ya, thought of that often. I may skip the grass clippings next year. Maybe save a bunch of maple leaves to put under my cukes. Haven't killed anything off yet, I don't bag my grass so .....
  6. nice but need a closer pic I think... good for you to see it!!!
  7. Almost looks to big to be a finch, bit hard to tell by the pictures. Also from what I can make out the beak of that bird looks like a grosbeak???
  8. wow...good question????????????????/
  9. Been having this bird come a round the feeders and bird bath. It hangs a round with the gold finches. I'm wondering if it might be a albino finch but don't know if that is possible.
  10. I don't know smurf, if I'm gonna dump grass clippings on the garden I'd use my own. That way I know there's no herbicide or weed killer on the grass before it was cut, a buddy told me his neighbor killed off his whole garden by accident that way..
  11. for the time being anyway, i dont have dead branches, just alot of wilted stuff!!!!!!!! before it starts to get roasted hot out i'm going to check them over good and see what i can do. i did talk a walk around the garden, not sure if i just want to believe it but it does look like the sulfate i added just might be doing some good. i hope!!!!!!
  12. I just trimmed my cherry tomato tonight. Not all of the branches but probably half of them. Hopefully it helps
  13. Over a day old
  14. I dug down a few inches put it a zip lock bag, put a check in with it and sent it to the u of m. Look on there web site for soil sample. they will have directions and address. I did it in the fall and got my results over the winter it took like two months to get the results.
  15. when i put the grass clippings down its after there established a bit, and after i have it all weeded and after a decent rain. i dont use the fresh green grass clippings. i get mine at the city compound where they dump there grass clippings from the baseball and softball parks they maintain and can get enough of the dried clippings i need. for fertilizer i've used 10-10-10 and this milorganite. the milorganite is supposed to be a good source of nitrogen. i also have a firepit in my back yard and spread the ashes in the garden. i believe thats the potash and i found it helps keep
  16. when do you put the grass down? Years ago I put fresh grass clippings down around everything that was not planted in rows. It got moldy and I had problems with blight in my tomatoes. A few years ago I sent in a soil sample to the u of m it cost 17.00 but I got a base line on how my soil is doing. They test your phosphorus, potassium and potash. I found out that I needed to add a lot of nitrogen.
  17. your probably right........when the leaves or a branch on the tomato plant dries up i simply take it off.
  18. That probably means it isnt going t fix my issue if you use it and have the same problems. I dont have the wilt issue (at least with the tomatos) but like i said mine just start dryig up from the bottom up
  19. I do the Epsom all the time. As I was told it benefits the tomato itself. I don't get that blossom end rot using epsom salt.
  20. Sucks they grow so nice and look great and then it seems like right when they are full of tomatoes it happens. I was thinking maybe at that stage they must need something my soil is lacking. People talk about epsom salt I tried it around two plants on Wednesday and watered it in guess i will see what happens but will be hard to judge since the problem had already started.
  21. i have no problem with big jungle size plants. mine like to do the same thing snagfinder. my current issue is the wilt and driving me crazy. so i've discussed this with 3 different people. my brother who by know means is an expert, a guy with a degree from the U of M in agriculture and does farm field inspections for a living, and the local farm coop people here in town, here is the rundown they gave me. BROTHER.......he lives in wisc, has his tomatoes in pots..........mine are in the garden, no raised beds or pots. he did alot of googling. so he takes his pots and dumps about 3 at a ti
  22. If you dont like the big jungley plants buy varieties that are determinant. Mine are starting to die off from the bottom up like they do every year about now. Wish i could figure out why.
  23. nope i havent. i've heard of people that pull the bottom little branches though for the same reason. my fight right now is the tomato wilt. plants looks sick. but the plants for the most part have a fair amount of tomatoes on them.
