Garden Report for 180625

I know, I said I wouldn’t write anything for a while. But I have some news, and a schedule.

So the news is, it looks like I’ve got some sort of blood disease attacking my deck tomatoes. The Bush All Star Beefsteak is toast. Leaves all bronzed and curly. Pulled it up (plastic gloves) and dumped it in dumpster. I’ll spread the dirt on the front lawn, and see if there’s something I can put in the washed container this late in the season. Worryingly, the Pink Accordion now has some leaves that are looking a little bronzlich.

The rest of it looks the same

The other news was me finally planting the carrots and chard in the holdout area of Section 2.

The schedule is here, tomatoes only, sorted by the ripening date:

So, in theory, we could be eating Early Girl tomatoes three weeks from now. However, I note that right now the Early Girl has no tomatoes, and only a few flowers, while the Brandywine has six tomatoes that are almost two inches in diameter.
