Epsom salts. I give my tomatoes a dose of epsom salts for magnesium. A handful sprinkled around the base of the plant. You can water it or let the rain disolve it.
- Lettuces will be bitter and bolting, time to remove them
- Radishes will be woody, no point in letting them grow
- Kohlrabi should fully bulb up soon, if it isn't, it is going the woody route
- Peas can be looked at for removal
- Remove weeds as always
- Cucumbers, zukes, and squash could use some liquid fertilizer.
- Tomatoes could use a little boost of the above
Disease Prevention/Insect Prevention
- Check your tomato leaves, I found 2 with spots
- Check you cucumbers for mildew and spots
- Remove any infected leaves from all plants and spray
- Sevin Dust or similar the bases of cukes, zukes, and squashes (beetles are coming)
- Sevin Dust or similar your eggplants (flea beetles are around)
- Look for holes in plant leaves and treat
- Remove bottom growth of tomatoes to prevent soil splashing
- Remove center growth of tomatoes (a bit) to allow for air circulation
- Mulch Mulch Mulch and create a barrier over your soil
- Put in your beans or second rotation
- Plants some zukes, cukes, and squashes in cups for back-ups
- Sunflower can go in the ground
- Cilantro and basil can be dropped in the ground again
- All fast growing herbs should go in the ground
Make a general assessment of your plants. I removed 1 tomato from a container because it wasn't growing well and looked pale in comparison to the other 32. Now I do have the luxury of having many plants. Sometimes it is better to remove and replant, if a plant isn't doing well.
I have one tomato with a nasty leaf distortion and curl. Worse the the leaf curl/mosiac pictures look on-line. That is probably what it has but I wonder if my aspirin baths did it. It is only one plant. I'll get some picture up for any passer by plant detectives.
