Our teens turned into 9 the other night. 30s nights 40s days this week. That powdery mildew is a pain here too. Supposedly worm compost with air and molasses or other things added for 24 hours sprayed on plants a few times cures it. I got a pump this year but didn't get to making the worm tea.
I have also got some Elephant garlic to plant why waste time with the little stuff, must try it roasted, I always have roasted onion but haven't tried garlic. Roasts will be out for a while with summer here so maybe I,ll try it on the BBQ.
Its all a bit slow really this year, but they are my seedlings,they have fungus powder on them, as five out of 7 days are wet at moment, 30c or 80 f here today 50% humility rain again tomorrow.
Brrrrrrrr! Teens tonight, maybe lower & next few nights, 30s days w/a 40 in there. GRRRRRRRR! Guess winter got here early.
William .. I faced the same dilemma with how many onions to plant so I have found that what works for me is to go ahead and put them all in whatever space I have and then harvest "onion greens" as I need the space back while other onions go on to maturity. The greens freeze nicely just putting them in a freezer zip-lock too.
Sorry to hear that sounds like it was too ripe. Usually the red ones are really good, know they make great juice in a steam juicer.
Took some time to Prune the tomatoes so I could pull them out and got the last 4 peppers pulled. Still have to pull the toms. I do have enough netting to cover all the boxes from the cats. Got about half the onions planted and took up one whole box. I don't know if I want to use another box whole box for the rest of them for I will need it in the spring. I ate a red pear today didn't care for it, was kinda of mushy and no grit like a Bartlett Pear.
Lyn, William,Diane, Vicky,
Thank you for the posts.

True garlic is good for the immune system. Also good on french bread. Trying to find the best place to plant mine, as last year I planted in the back bed with the J. artichokes. Was reading yesterday they like sandy loam, I have the sandy just need to get more nutrients in the soil and a good sunny spot. Also where I wouldn't be planting beans or peas.
