- Tomatoes with Early Blight disease (see attached photos): This is a fungal disease - the tomatoes are unaffected and OK to consume but all of the diseased and brown leaves should be removed from the garden ASAP. There is no cure and you should remove the entire plant whenever it finishes producing tomatoes. Summer solarization will help kill the fungus - contact a Director if you're interested in solarizing your bed.
- Inoculant for legume crops (peas, beans, and others). This is an organic product that contains a bacterium which enables these plants to use nitrogen out of the air to make their own fertilizer. I found some on Amazon.com for about $13. Search for "Inoculant Organic Pea Lentil Vetch Broad Beans 8 Ounce Package."
Mark Henthorn gets a round of applause for his general help with the garden and the interest he continually shows in making the garden a great experience.
Judy Sanders, our President, also gets our thanks for delivering to Good Samaritans untold pounds of produce from not only her garden, but from ACCG gardeners who have requested to donate their produce. If you are unable to harvest, please contact one of the Directors and we will arrange to get it to the charity of your choice.
