  1. Am I the only one who thinks a September tomato loses its oomph? Better than none but not the same as a late June/July/early August imho.

    They sure do! Last year was a little different here because of the hot and sunny weather we had in September I guess.

    Dang wicked wind and storm come through here yesterday eve and took down a 20" maple 10' from the ground. Sounded like a 45 went off in the house:eek:
    Also broke a mater plant or two down the road a couple miles at the garden where it didn't hit as hard thank God.
    Guess I'll get my arse in gear and tie em up better for the next round :oops::D

    I have grown Sioux tomatoes (sorry for being insensitive) since 2010. They seem to be the last to get that mealy core going. They do like mid august weather and fairly productive.

    If anyone asks I do indeed. I figure it’s the lesser of two evils. With the second generation of round up ready I don’t spray any insecticide or anything the last 40 days. Conventional sweet corn I would spray at least 3-5 times after tasseling to keep bugs off.
    When I just grew a garden for us cutting the top inch or so off the cob with a worm in it and go on wa the standard. When it comes to selling produce you grow what other people want not yourself or go broke.
    I still raise silver queen as well.

    I have blue lakes right now. I may have white half runners this week if not the week after. I cut back on beans a bit. 10 hr days of picking beans will wear you out for a while.
    I’m thinking of planting a bunch of September beans to sell by the bushel soon as the ground gets workable.

    $5/dozen or 2/$1. You’ll be able to find some not so fresh or not quite perfect for $4/dozen or 3 for $1.
    Produce, cattle, hogs, milk. It’s not changed much for the last 30 years despite rising costs.
    I went up $1/pound on ground beef to $5/pound and to $50 bushel on beans. Everything else is the same.
