csa thursday

hey guys
tomorrow more peas, kohlrabi, brocolli and greens, eggs. collards are of course the green made famous in the south. It can grow all summer. ive found the leaves get tougher and a little paler as the summer goes on but still very tasty. kale and chard do well in the heat as well. anyway eat your greens.
one of the things i am doing to treat the cabbage moth (and worm) is to spray the plants with diluted molasses. its a win win because the moths dont like it and molasses has lots of good stuff in it for the plants - they seem to love it. gonna spray it on everything. molasses is also very good for you - it lowers the ph of your blood. almost everyone is acidic. molasses - blackstrap unsulphured from open harvest bulk section is extremely cheap and great for you - one tablespoon a day. heartburn, acid reflux......all go right away.
supergalactic cherry tomato plant competition is heating up. a picture of brad wilsons is posted here with his welded cage (you can climb it.) he is shooting for five thousand.
