Hi longhorn, Got our first light frost last night. Picked everything I could pick last night. Garlic came in this week and got garden tilled before my old Troy Horse blew the crank out. Time to repower that beast. Old Tecumseh blew up just as I pulled out onto grass. LOL

Deer hunting time again -LOVE IT!

Hi,

Good to hear from you! Harvesting garden and deer hunting...you are livin the dream there, son! Other than flying cranks but that's kind of exciting too. Wonder if they still make the Tecumseh engine. I remember those from long ago days growing up on the farm.

We are planting garlic today and putting ear tags on new calves later.

You banned me from your joke thread for trying to save someone's life.

WTF is wrong with you?

Hi Jerry,

Just follow the instructions on bag. I do at least the first two times. Try to do a thrd after a big rain.

You won't regret the expense. The yiels is boosted.

I had the worst crop of tomatoes that I ever had last year but others in the area said the same thing so it wasn't just me. Anything I can do to increase yield is OK with me. I tilled horse manure and a cow manure/compost combo into the soil last fall along with some leaves so with your recommendation, I should be good to go!

I always add some Black Cow ( from Home Depot) and a bale of Sphagnum peat moss. I have 6 8x16 raised garden beds and local soil has too much clay. All three have boosted my annual production every year for three years.

Be sure to not replant tomatoes in the same place, rotate locations.

Each year I process 1220 to 1500 tomatoes on 70 to 75 plants. one half early girls, the other half a mix of San Martino, marzano , amish paste and/or polish linguisi. The last two are huge tomatoes.

I will in mid year add miracle grow liquid fertilizer once of twice.

My tomato plants consistently get to be 5-6 feet tall.

Once they bloom and begin to have fruit, you must spray the plants every 7 to 10 days with a fungicide. Don't wait to see the leafs spotting and curling spray every 7010 days after they show smll tomaotoes.
I have lost a crop by NOT doing that. When every one has a poor crop, I've got tomatoes. Took me several years to learn that one. We have a heavy dew since we are close to Lake Michigan

Hope that helps!

Bob
