    Keep the N and K going weekly along with plenty of water. If the tops are not tender and easily snapped, the plants are behind. Tops should remain thick, tender and growing ALWAYS.

    Septoria leaf spot on the bottom leaves can get completely out of control in warm, damp weather spreading upwards. Most people think it's early blight, but the recommended Chlorothalonil sprays like Daconil are ineffective for septoria. You need to use mancozeb, rotating with daconil. The main pests are hornworms and stink bugs and an occasional army worm.

    Like grandma always said, what the hell is a bean without fried taters, cornbread, onion, and a pickled beet.

    I don't typically plant a big garden, just big enough to eat a little bit through the summer and maybe can some maters/salsa. This year my cucumbers have been doing very well so I have been making refrigerator pickles often. My wife eats a jar a day sometimes and they are some of the best dang pickles going. She likes em super sour so I make em heavy on the vinegar and they turn out fantastic. I've been enjoying them myself. Wish i had a pic to share!!!

    I’ve got a question for y’all folks. I’ve seen a lot of sweet corn growing in different gardens off the road that is only a foot or two tall and tasseled out. , My woman was asking me what was wrong with that corn and I didn’t have a answer. She said maybe it’s baby corn

    More than likely first time gardeners who neglected the fertilizer. I saw a bunch of starved gardens back in the 2009 garden boom.

    First round ended up with 22 quarts of tender, sweet, and tangy pickled beets. I think I'll do 12 more jars.
