15 tomatoes, 8 cauliflower, 4 brussel sprouts, 150 onions, row of carrots, 30 hills potatoes, 6 cabbage, yellow&green beans, cukes, spinach

8 peppers, radishes, a large old asparagus bed and a patch if rhubarb

Everything looks good now that we had some rain a couple weeks ago.

 

That's a real garden, not a little hobby garden like mine.

Duff just curious are those 2 pictures from difference years?

 

Nope, taken a couple hours apart yesterday. Like fish pics, lighting and angles can play tricks.

:)

Deer wiped out the garden two years in a row, so I built the cage. It was all plastic netting at first, but the rabbits chewed through it, so I went with wire down below last year. And with it being so small, it's easy to keep up with the weeds.

That is a cool looking back yard. :rolleyes:

 

Thank you Sir! 

After being cooped up for 6 months of the year, I tend to spend a lot of time out there barefootin' and dinking around.

Here we go again. My tomatoes are looking great and then it starts. One plant started just wilting away. Got some nice tomatoes coming too. This has happened the last couple years. It starts and seems to spread to the rest.

Have you had some really big rainfall amounts lately? I have seen my tomatoes look like that after a period of excessive rain.

Net info.

 

How to Save Wilted Tomato Plants

Dig a 6-inch deep hole in the tomato bed with a narrow trowel and check the soil moisture.

Inspect the plants for insect damage, including ragged or holey leaves or visible insects along stems or on the underside

Examine foliage and stems for fungal infections. Check for dark spots on the leaves or a gray, white

Pull up and destroy tomato plants if the older leaves yellow and wilt first, followed by healthy leaves

Mow down weeds surrounding the tomato bed and pull weeds growing near the plants so wilt-causing pests and diseases

 

Why are my tomato plants wilting?

A: Quick Answer. Reasons for tomato wilt include inadequate watering, vascular wilt conditions, tomato spotted wilt virus, walnut toxicity and stalk borers. Tomato plants suffering from wilt due to inadequate watering or attack by stalk borers

Woodboring beetle

The term woodboring beetle encompasses many species and families of beetles whose larval or adult forms eat and destroy wood. In the woodworking industry, larval stages of some are sometimes referred to as woodworms. The three most speciose families of woodboring beetles are longhorn beetles, bark beetl…

Doesn't look like blight-I'd pull that plant and check for root maggots and stalk bores. Did your plants die last year?

Seeing your location is so. mn and knowing the amount of rain that's fallen it could be root rot.

It almost looks like you took a picture of my garden except mine are turning yellow also. Looked beautiful a week ago now cukes and tomatoes are not looking so hot. That beetle thing has me wondering about 2 weeks ago picked up half a coffee can of what looked to be stag beetles out of my garden just as I did last year. Don't really see any damage at base of plants but maybe getting roots. There used to be a huge elm tree under where my garden is now but its been removed for at least ten years. Must breed in that thing, they come out of the ground at night from holes about the size of a dime. Hopefully can figure it out soon this is two years in a row. Sucky part is it happens after I admire how great everything is looking.

I also have some blight, getting the bad leaves out of there is a good idea. I also spray with a fungicide.

I was starting to believe it was from being in buckets,  2 years in a row the leaves turn yellow with brown spots and look horrible. Last year dealt with some bottom rot but surprisingly so far the plants look ugly but the maters look good...

Check the stalk at ground level, it could be cut worm. I've had that problem before I made raised beds. 

i had issues with cutworms at one point early in my gardening career. someone told me to put ashes from a firepit or fireplace. havent had issues since. just dont go overboard.

What I did was to use 1 gal ice cream bucket with the bottom cut out and placed into the soil a couple inches around the plant as a barrier to keep them away from the tomatoes. Grassy areas next to the garden soil is where they come from.

You could try epsom salt. Google for info. Magnesium deficiency perhaps? I have no blight yet.

Thanks, I do use it. I know what blight looks like also. It's been extremely wet here in southern MN.

O use Epsom salt also when the tomatoes start coming. Also in the cukes. Apparently the minerals in the salt is like steroids to Barry bonds.

I till in Maple leaves and use 10-10-10. I also throw all my used coffee grounds in and things like banana peelings, potatoe peelings, skin from cukes. I think you can figure out.

My stuff looks a little better after a couple warm dry days. Hopefully keeps heading that direction. On the plus side I did pick peas, beans, and two zucchini last night.

    • Certainly looks like more  of a Saltwater feature, what with requiring an external add on device.
    • Lead is down to 4 games. Oh boy!
    • It's not a useful function for anyone that is operating a boat that it would be completely abnormal to have radar mounted on it.   It's also pointless anywhere in this state except possibly superior.    
    • One crazy story while up in LOTW...  When you fish a week up there for Muskies something pretty crazy will happen but this year was among the most fascinating experiences that I have had.... We are fishing a weedy spot on an Island and all of the sudden I see a tanker swimming parallel to the boat about 10 yards out (BTW, I have never seen that up in LOTW before).  First I thought I was seeing things, took a second and third look and then yelled "there is a huge Musky swimming out in front of us".  The Musky went straight to my brothers Top Raider and hammered it!  All of us saw it.  My brother fought it for a while and it shook free.      So this experience got me thinking if the Muskies are really turned on can their strike zones be that large?  I am estimate that fish swam more that 10 yards to intersect with that bait!  Maybe it was just cruising and by luck it happened?  I sure seemed that the Musky was focused on eating that Top Raider .... so maybe the Strike Zone is that large or much larger than I thought...
    • The whitewater rafting was decent.  Low level class 1-3 but still enjoyable.  River and Trail Outfitters at Harpers Ferry.  Now sitting in the Guide House, a local favorite established by one of the veteran rafting guides.  Having a Duck Rabbit Brewery Milk Stout and ready to dig in to a fine bowl of crab mac.   Yes. Yes I did fall out of the raft in one of the rapids.  It’s was pretty fun!
    • How many people are still fishing out of a 14 foot Lund?  
    • Seems kinda pointless for about 99.9999% of people that are just fishing some dumb lake in their 14 foot lund.   
    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
