September Propagation Meeting

In September we had a great time learning how to propagate plants from cuttings and planting seeds. We started cuttings of basil, peppermint, among other herbs. The group also left with a variety of seeds to start their fall gardens. We also had several new faces join us making it even more fun.

Producing More Bell Peppers and Wilting Tomato Vines

I have Cosmos, Zinias, Zuccini all sprouting. I have tons of sweet cucumbers still coming on and on and on. I bottled pickles last week! what a blast. I have basil and bell peppers still alive and about 3 straggly tomato plants. What do I do to keep the latter one alive and what do I do to maximize my bell peppers?
