Tomato: Late blight? 3

Posted by maco in Growing Stuff on June 18, 2014 at 00:09" and edited at June 18, 2014 at 00:09

I just pulled this from my "patio" tomato plant (which is actually in-ground). I'm suspecting late blight. It poured rain all of last week. So, for those with more this late... Read more
Harvest time!

Posted by SporkyRat on June 16, 2014 at 20:10"

I harvested two of my Cherokee Purple tomatoes today and turned one of them into a delectable tomato sandwich. It was divine. I've also harvested about forty of the Sweet 100 tomatoes and roasted them. I'm hoping to turn them into a small amount of tomato sauce. For two people, that... Read more

My dill plant died about a month ago. I tried to keep it going but the poor guy had just had enough. The sage, mint, thyme and chives are all fine. Sage and mint have gotten kinda down once or twice but perked up with a bit of care. The supermarket basil plant I've been trying to keep... Read more

We had a wicked hail storm here this past Thursday. I've lived in this area for about 25 years and never saw anything like this. ![Hail in the herb garden]( ![Pouring hail]( I had recently... Read more

Hi there, I was forgetful and left a bunch of bulbs and a few seeds outside through a major rainstorm we just had. They are all soaked! They were not ready to be planted as the direct sow was in June for our hardiness area - is there anything that can be done? Thanks, ~Genevieve

I started a compost pile almost a year ago when I got the house. The county gives out these plastic rings to compost inside of (county green initiatives to save the bay include getting people to compost and use that instead of inorganic fertilizer). I got two because with the size of my yard,... Read more
rename account? 3

Posted by melannen in Growstuff Feedback & Support on May 09, 2014 at 21:17"

Hi! I just put in my garden for this year and I'm ready to enter it in Growstuff, but I've realized that I'd like to link my Growstuff account to my worksafe ID rather than my, uh, non-worksafe internet handle. Is there a way to rename my account, or should I just get a new account and start... Read more

I have tiny little tomatoes growing right now! They're the size of my pinky nail, but they're growing! I will soon have purple tomatoes to eat! I have a lemon about the size of my thumbnail growing as well and lots of flowers. If I'm lucky, I'll have lots of lemons this summer.
Finally planting things!

When I bought the house last year, the date I took ownership was pushed back about a month due to paperwork red tape. Consequently, everything died waiting for transplant from little seedling cups to big dirt. Over the winter, my back yard was driven over by a large truck when the old shed... Read more
wasabi & horseradish in containers 4

Posted by wrdnrd in Growing Stuff on April 26, 2014 at 22:17"

I've been growing horseradish in a container for about 7 or 8 years now (it especially loves being in the self-watering container). I've been growing wasabi in a (non-self-watering) container for 2 years. Both do just fine -- surviving thru' the winter, putting out a fantastic amount of leaves... Read more

There are sprouts! The mustard spinach is starting to appear in [The Nursery]( The red kale, wild arugula, and marjoram are still pending, but I'm very pleased to have _some_ sort of seedling action going on.
