Fun Farming  Part 1 or 3 

Comment by Randall Smith on September 2, 2019 at 7:24am

Well, it's September now, and the garden is winding down.

I've dug up all my potatoes (except sweet) and onions. Tomatoes and peppers are doing well for the most part. Several varieties haven't produced like I would have liked.

Sweet corn was a disaster this year. That's what I get for buying packaged seeds from Rural King. Worms and bugs have plagued kale, cabbage, and broccoli, not to mention squash.

I'm nearly ready to plow the whole garden under. Then, come Spring, I'm eager to go through the process all over again. Hope.

How are others doing?

I "harvested" dill (weed) yesterday. It grows voluntarily every year, of course. Like my sunflowers, the seeds germinate all over my garden. I save a few plants for the next year. Anyway, I love dill seeds on salads. Plus, I use them for making dill pickles (my cucumbers). Everybody should grow dill.

Mulching is good. How big is your garden, Jotham?

We received over an inch of rain yesterday! The garden drank it up, esp. my sweet corn. I planted it late, so it's way behind in tasseling, etc. The rain certainly helped it.

Hot and dry here for the next couple weeks. I have my entire garden mulched with meadow clippings!

Another hot, dry day. My garden is very thirsty. I'll be hauling water from my downspout rain buckets (trash cans) to water both individual and row plants. It's not as good as rain water, but it'll have to do. Onions and potatoes are done by now, so I can skip those.

I still plant seeds one by one, although I sometimes get lazy and simply scatter them out.

It's good to hear from you again, Spud. Hope you're doing alright.

I like that seed planting machine.  Now I just need enough land to use it.

This gardener reveals his skills of successful gardening by taking us into his laboratory and using his microscope to explain natural processes and into his garden to demonstrate his methods. I like his style and the ways he uses science as he works with nature to get good crops.

Thanks, Joan. Good info. I still have some seeds from a Spring pack. I'll plant them in August.

Two seeds that proliferate each year are dill and sunflower. I'm awash in dill plants. I harvest the seeds of both, but too many get scattered about.
