I think my problem is two-fold.  I've added more soaker-hoses to the garden, which delivers more water per hour, and forgot how long I've let the water run in the past.

This month's water bill from the city was a shocker!  It was 2 or 3 time the normal cost.

That made me open the city's meter hole and check the usage.  I watered my garden and found that I had been using too much water.  I took the gallon usage, converted it to cubic feet, calculated how much I should use to water to the depth that my plants roots went to, and found that I should be using 1/2 to 1/3 as much as I have been using.

Welcome, Dorothy, to our little group! I read your comment on Daniel's forum discussion. Regarding tomato worms, I check my plants every day. Those little devils can do some serious damage!

Daniel, it all looks so delicious. My white peaches don't ripen 'til September. Your blue and black berries? I though you got rid of your invasive blackberry patch.

Congrats, Daniel, it looks great!

Daniel, I enjoy reading about your "experiments", trials and tribulations. Plus, I learn a lot from your expertise. Thanks.

My SIL has a variety of sweet corn that got wormy and is worthless to sell. So today, I'm going to go pick several bushels and freeze a big batch. I'll just chop off the wormy ends. Hate to see all that corn go to the compost pile. It's amazing how much he has to throw away. And it hurts to see it done.

My yard and garden is surrounded by fields of either corn or soybeans. When it's corn, I have to plant my sweet corn as far from the field as possible. Usually and fortunately however, sweet corn pollinates before field corn. Enjoyed your explanation, Daniel.
Nice looking garden, Don!

Thanks Daniel. You are far from pedantic. Informative is the word I would use. And entertaining. Loved the example of cross breeding :) It was the rotation I had in my mind. Such as it's became anyway. Age is catching up with me.

Don, it's Kathy if you like. And that is a beautiful garden.

k.h., that may be so--I have never worried about cross breeding, although for the past couple of years I have had a disappointing B. sprouts crop.  Few sprouts and too small.  Maybe that's the reason.  Here is the garden two years ago, with the sprouts close to the cabbages.  The gardeners I have consulted have not suggested as a possibly cause, but who knows?
