Dead, Dry and Diseased

If you haven’t been watering or tending your plot, you may want to go and check on it.

Powdery mildew and squash vine borer damage are visible in several plots. Please remove the dead and diseased leaves promptly.

Many gardens look dry, too. Gardens need about an inch of water per week. When you water, really soak the ground.

Check that the water reached the roots by turning over an area with a trowel to see how deeply the water has penetrated. In order for the plants to produce well, consistent watering is key so visit regularly to water and weed.
