re: 2020 Garden Thread - bluemoons
Carmens are one of my favorite peppers and very productive. If you guys like those, I'd recommend checking out Corno di Toro Giallo peppers. They're basically yellow carmens. They taste just as good and add some color to whatever you're cooking....

re: 2020 Garden Thread - bluemoons
I got back late yesterday afternoon after having been gone since Thursday. I had lots of stuff take off while I was gone. Bunch of tomatoes cracked with some rain we got + irrigation being on, so I used those for smoked salsa. I also had some caterpillars demolish like half of my striped german toma...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - bluemoons
Take an electric toothbrush and bump the flower clusters with it. You’ll see the flowers release the pollen. I find that it works better in the middle of the day when it’s dry. Rain or humidity makes the pollen get kinda hung up. ...

[quote]Looks fantastic. That's some massive tomatoes! [/quote] :cheers:. Highly recommend that Fred's Tie Dye variety. They produce some giants and they taste awesome.

re: 2020 Garden Thread - bluemoons
Mine is also becoming productive. I've been steadily picking tomatoes, bell peppers, and squash and zucchini. I pulled one of my zucchini plants and planted 4 more okra seeds. I'm over squash and zucchini at this point. Peppers are really starting to come on and I think at this time next week I'l...

If it’s a calcium issue bone meal or CaN will work. It could just be a watering issue though. My soil isn’t calcium deficient but blossom end rot shoes up every now and then with inconsistent watering. ...

re: We fell victim to the squash vine borer - bluemoons
A lot of people I know don’t even grow squash because of them. I’ve had success the last couple of years keeping consistently dusting the vines themselves with sevin. I still have the moths but I think the dust kills the eggs. I try to keep it away from the flowers so the bees pollinate them. ...

re: Minn Kota Terrova or Ulterra - bluemoons
Agreed. I never use the anchor mode on mine. I clip the remote to my shorts along with my power pole remote. I can run my trolling motor without looking at the remote because I’ve learned where all the buttons are. That stuff just comes with time. Hand control, foot control, and iPilot all have ...

Thanks man. I've never grown any of the bushes. The dwarf varieties I'm referring to can be found here: https://www.dwarftomatoproject.net/ A group of people basically just started crossing various tomato plants to make them smaller and more manageable. ...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - bluemoons
Man I think they’re awesome. I’d have to go out there and count, but my dwarf plants produce almost just as many tomatoes as the big indeterminate plants. They’re so much more manageable. I’ve found them to be pretty disease resistant too, even though they’re very dense. I’ve grown new Fred’s tie dy...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - bluemoons
My stuff is also kinda behind. I lost a bunch of peppers early on to that weird blossom rot I was dealing with. That seems to have worked itself out thankfully. I also lost my real first cluster of flowers on most of my tomato plants because I had a bacterial issue with them whenever I planted them ...

ETA: sorry for the giant photos. Not sure why imgur did that. Here are some photos. Things are going well for the most part. Still been fighting these damn aphids on eggplants but I feel like there are less around now. I've had a bunch of cherry tomatoes ripen, and got my first full sized ripe ...
