    Can't you trade an oil change or a tire rotation for a watering person?

    Peas are raging, basil is limping, tomatoes are still small and green, nasturtiums have taken over everything except the buttonberries. The pinot noir vines are hidden.

    Oh man. Have the carcasses disgusted you yet? I put a ring of slug killer around the garden and seems to have stopped 90% of them. I still find the little slug fetuses on things and now im moving on to insect wars.

    1st garden has been a bust so far but Im learning valuable info for next year.

    I like Deadline for snails and slugs, grey liquid/gel you put a perimeter with. Stuff is deadly, I had snails eating the shit out of my pumpkins, one squirt of a perimeter and that ended rather quickly. Im having a lot of stuff eaten by bugs, luckily everything is growing fast enough to keep up with it.

    First red cherry tomato, many soon to follow.

    I was looking forward to trying scapes this year. They weren’t ready and then I got busy, turned around and looks like I missed? Did a fair amount of googling but waiting too long for scapes didn’t turn up much.

    Looks like the seeds have already formed- I have never had them that late but Id assume they are stringy and tough.

    Did you try em?

    No but they seem pretty potent so I was thinking of cutting a bit from above and below the seeds.

    And so based on that are the bulbs ready to dig, or do you go by the “lowest of 6 leaves turning brown” method I read about online?

    I go by the leaves. My ignorant understanding is that the bulbs are still growing/curing until the leaves tell me they're done (and not all varieties will shoot scapes). fwiw garlic is a pretty reliable bumper crop here, and I'm usually able to cure and preserve all year.

    I procrastinated the scapes last year too - dried them and made a nice decoration:

    So my garden was going very well and all of a sudden things started to either die, finish producing or go to seed. It wasn't simultaneous across the garden but as plants would start to produce they'd stop after a few tomatoes, beans or peppers. The lettuce is doing great, the Swiss chard is too. The strawberry plant flowers and then the fruit becomes a tiny hard yellow nugget in a day or two. The corn husks all popped open a day or two ago and the ears dried right up. Cucumbers are sort of doing well, they are producing and ripening nicely but the next round is stunted and not getting bigger.

    Am I supposed to be changing or upping the fertilizer as things are "popping"? I'm watering more as we dried out a lot over the last month, mostly in the morning but sometimes when it's hot like this it dries out and needs a second round. Too much water? I have a feeling a lot of it is due to the store bought plants we started with. The things I started from seed are weak, other than the lettuce that's banging away, but moving along. Learning lots to apply to next year.

    Macro-nutrient deficits shouldn’t cause such widespread or sudden issues, and producing symptoms in the foliage that can be traced back to the deficiency. Any idea what your pH is? Did you prep the soil any differently this year. Add anything like someone else’s compost or other soil additive? If you pull up a problem plant or two, what are the roots doing? Or perhaps are you putting weed and feed or other such additive on the lawn, then putting the lawn clippings in the compost?

    Any pickling brine recipes or tips? Did you put fennel in?
