Yeah the weave would work, just don't know if I can get to it. Have a power line down in the yard and minor house damage, and we're on the way out of town. So the corn is on its own. ...

I'm a little concerned about blossom end rot with all the rain, but nothing I can do about besides grab the tomatoes as soon as they reach the breaker stage. Wind flattened my corn. [img]https://i.imgur.com/FN0b0D8.jpeg[/img] Butternuts looking good tho [img]https://i.imgur.com/rHmiGkx...

[quote]Install a pollinator garden.[/quote] I did. Started a row of perennials with the main intent being a wind block along the southern edge of the garden. As for weather, use your local NWS site and read the forecast discussion. [link=(https://www.weather.gov/hgx/)]NWS Houston[/link] ...

[quote]Who else is giving their garden a daily shot of water yet in this heat?[/quote] I'm not yet. Just had a ton of rain on Sunday, and the ground is still wet. My beds are mulched pretty well. Yes it's hot, but at least here this week it's 1) not windy, and 2) pretty overcast, thus preserving so...

Not pictured below, I harvested the last of the broccoli just in time before it flowered. Some of it already had, and aphids were starting to take over some of the foliage. Not surprising, as warm as it's been. Corn is coming along nicely [img]https://i.imgur.com/10axEuX.jpeg[/img] Tomatoe...

I sort of do that. Pretty much no-till with chopped leaves and/or grass clippings. I use stuff that breaks down slowly like oak leaves in the pathways. I also use thin cardboard or brown paper on the bed to stop weeds, with chopped leaves or clippings on top. Idea is to build soil health. I broadfor...
