Garden Work

Yesterday I spent several hours at my plot. Aside from weed whacking and pruning the weeds in the community garden paths, I:

– chopped down the Red Gold potato plants and two more tomato plants because of blight
– dug all the fingerling potatoes volunteers from the path
– dug one plant of Red Gold’s
– pulled fat green caterpillars off the cabbage
– watched the favas and zucchini grow for a while
– admired the lettuce
– harvested on garlic bulb to see if they’re ready yet
– sprayed potato and tomato plants heavily with copper soap

  • Hello,

    What is copper soap? Is this effective on the blight?

    Thanks in advance!

  • I love vegetable garden and spent most of my time in my garden,

  • Was the garlic bulb ready?

  • Very happy to read that you watch your plants growing closely, too! I thought there might be something wrong with me…

  • I have no idea what copper soap actually is. The brand I bought is called "Concern" and it was in a nice spray bottle at the hardware store. It works well against blight on my tomatoes it seems to me.

    Th garlic bulb was fine, but I probably should have let it sit int eh sun to dry a week or so as the wrappers were thick.

    Tina, I think its considered OK as long as you don't talk to them. (I generally pretend its Skippy I'm talking to.)
