Garden Weather Forecast

 

Harvest time happening or coming up shortly for many plants. This week looks great, with hot and dry weather. 

 

"It would be dry they said."

So much for the dry streak.

 

Knew it was shyte yesterday when my garden got crushed again. Another 0.8" to the monthly total.

 

Took a screenshot of the farm's weather station during the heaviest rains, when it was coming down at 2.2"/hr. Which is biblical, ark-type drenchings

Daconil, how often do you apply?

 

I sprayed my tomatoes with copper fungicide about a week ago when I first saw touches of blight.  Still think there's some hanging on?

 

But I wasn't aware of Daconil.  I bought some concentrate today, and planning on mixing some up tomorrow and spraying my tomatoes again with my bottle sprayer.   How often should I apply?

The label says treat every 7-10 days.

 

I generally spray once a week and use a tank/pump sprayer for ease of application. A bottle hand sprayer can be tiring on the hands unless you only have a few plants to do.

 

Daconil won't kill fungus once it's on the plant, but pretty sure it works by blocking the spore from attaching and germinating in the first place

 

Also: with tomatoes, there is no interval or wait time required after last treatment before harvest. Just wash well in the sink and you're good to go

Thanks, 

That what I use, a tank pump sprayer.

Yet another afternoon of hvy rains on tap. What else is new.

Severe storms also a possibility today.. bc the atmosphere is juiced, plus there's decent updraft helicity in the area. Which promotes rotating thunderstorms.

Tornado Outlook. 5% is actually pretty high for New England

If I were out storm chasing today, I'd focus on a box between Athol-> Springfield -> Worcester-> Lowell.

Just sprayed all my tomatoes with Daconil.  However I noticed Ive got some end rot! :banghd:.    I have no idea where it came from?  I water regularly, add Calmag to each watering, prune.    Not all my plants have it,  just a few.  Always issues with tomatoes.

Guessing some random squash. 

 

Closest match on image search is a spaghetti squash.
