Community Green

Certainly it takes more than a parent(s) to raise a child and prepare him/her to live in the here and now and to do well in the future. The world is more than the sun, moon and stars of our village but it's also the village on the other side of the river. It's not that there are different objects in the sky, but viewed from a different orientation.

Tomato Booster
When your tomatoes, eggplants and peppers begin to bloom, mix up a batch of this potion to encourage prolific, healthy fruiting.

2 tablespoons Epsom salts

1 gallon water

The magnesium and sulfur in the Epsom salts are micro-nutrients that foster fruiting.

Vegetables and Fruits

Plant warm-season veggies such as tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, squash, and peppers.
Mulch sprawling veggies, such as melons and squash, to keep them clean and away from soggy soil.
Thin vegetable seedlings.
Keep your vegetable garden evenly and regularly watered.
Address insect and disease problems as soon as you spot them.
Keep weeds pulled – they compete for nutrients.
Remove fallen fruits or veggies to prevent insects and diseases from spreading.
Install fences or netting to protect your garden from rabbits, birds, and other hungry creatures.
Install trellises, stakes, or cages for vining veggies.
Plant summer herbs such as basil and cilantro. Pinch off flower buds to encourage more tasty leaves.
Harvest cool-season vegetables, such as broccoli, onions, cabbage, and asparagus.
Begin harvesting warm-season veggies as they mature.
