We all lead pretty busy lives these days and between juggling our work, family, sporting and social lives we’re left with little time for the things such as gardening, baking or even getting a good homemade meal on the table. Lettuce and hostas are popular food for slugs, which can nibble garden plants to pieces. Grass clippings from our yard is all I have used for years now. The clippings get dumped in a pile and left to dry out a bit first before I mulch with it. I only had a few weeds pop up here and there. Sorry about your tomatoes, Jill. Thanks for the information, and I’m interested to know what you find out with the testing. I haven’t had that particular problem, but I sure have enough other problems in the garden to figure out over the years. I garden in raised beds in a suburban neighborhood. All six of my tomato plants did this last year. Couldn’t figure out why, since they had come from two different nurseries. Replanted tomatoes in the same spot, but late in the season, and they were fine. This year the tomatoes are going great, but the leaves of the potatoes in a wooden barrel curled in the same way. Few blossoms and zero potatoes. The really scary thing about this is that the only thing I had added to the tomato bed last year was manure from the big box store. And the potato barrel the year had mostly bagged garden soil, again from the big box store. When even the bagged, name brand products are contaminated, we have a very large problem that needs a lot more attention drawn to it. While a living cover is preferable, at least a mulch provides food and protection to the soil and its inhabitants. Nutrition gardeners gradually embrace this nurturing instinct, as they develop a genuine reverence for their soil. They become soil lovers. Finally, an answer to what happened to me this year. I had a beautiful bed of over 6′ tomato plants in my 6×6 garden I had carefully filled with rich earth composted in with commercial manure sold locally only to have them start with the curling leaves and withered plants. No insect damage, no sign of over watering or blight, just green withered leaves. Never happened before, blamed it on plants being diseased from purchase but had several different varieties. Now after reading all this info I have a different perspective. Not sure I’ll try again next year but if I do, I’ll certainly research back to this blog. Thank you for posting. https://www.smarticular.net/en/no-garden-no-problem-veggies-can-grown-indoors/ Here is a quick troubleshooting guide to common gardening mistakes. Gardening is a beautiful and healthy thing, right? Bright flowers, fresh food, dappled shade from a leafy tree… unfortunately, it also means lots of plastic. The gardening industry consumes hundreds of millions of pounds of plastic each year and, according to Penn State scientist James Garthe, only about 1% of that is recycled – a far lower rate than other industries (about 25% of plastic in milk jugs is recycled, for example). The grey garden slug, Derocerus reticulatum, is a major pest in gardens throughout the Willamette Valley. This slug eats a leaf in a garden.  (Photo: Robin Rosetta of the Oregon Stat) My garden is excessively hot and dry We collect missed garden waste collections once a week on a scheduled day.

Even if it *were* possible to deter moles from tunneling your lawn or garden by tarring corncobs, planting gum in the ground without touching it, or setting up pinwheel wind-farms—which it most definitely isn’t—all you’ve done is solve your problem at the expense of introducing a problem for your neighbors. Which is a crappy thing to do to someone who lives next door to you. Rock the pots You’ve successfully kept a small pot of herbs alive and feel like you can expand out. To do this, buy a large garden pot and fill it with soil, add seedlings and water regularly. This works well for silverbeet, strawberries even tomatoes and chillies. Also check out miniature fruit trees which thrive in pots. I had an experience this year with my mulch garden. I used a sprinkler with our well water (artesian water with high pH) and watered during a hot day (95+) temps. We usually use a soaker hose or rainwater, but tried the sprinkler this year. It totally burned the tomato, potato, and melon leaves. The rest of the garden didn’t look that great either. Another lesson learned after over 30 years of gardening. Just a few blocks away from the garden, Eileen Burns mixes drinks at Californos in Westport. Remedies: Set up rabbit- and deer-proof fencing around your garden. Use deterrents for other pets. If you have gophers, moles and similar pests in your area, consider building raised beds. I am container gardening on my deck and my tomato plants are turning yellow.

Use these tips to keep your plants safe. It would appear the tomato problem is a nation wide issue. If that’s the case, is it solar activity, chemtrails, acid rain, etc???? Many gardeners in my area who never use compost or mulch and are having the same problem. I had a similar problem this year…new garden…new wood mulch…some things did great, tomatoes failed. I did research and it says wood and straw mulch can do good at first but they PULL THE NITROGEN out of the soil so the plants can fail. I believe that’s what happened. My research said compost OR leaf mulch is actually the best for your garden. We moved into our current house two years ago, it’s twelve years old, north facing rear garden. The lawn area (and most of the garden to be honest is a mess), we got a lot standing water when it rains, and the grass squelches when walked on. The area closest to the house is the worst. The cause was of course builders rubble, clay and clay subsoil which is just below the turf (which is a shockingly poor turf). Many gardens are overrun with the slow-moving creatures.

Every garden deserves a citrus tree. In all but the coldest districts, citrus trees feature in backyards. Interested in combining stone wall construction with the rock gardens mentioned on Page 1? The rocks in a stone wall can be selected so as to complement the rocks in a rock garden beautifully! I have been doing deep mulch since reading your glowing experiences. I was also worried about herbicide issues when my cucumbers failed to thrive. But I replanted a little later in the season and they eventually took off. I have had great luck so far, only one year in. However, I have used old hay that had been sitting outside composting in the elements for over a year. Maybe you can buy big round bales and let them sit somewhere outside for a year or two until any possible herbicides have had a chance to decompose. It’s usually cheap or even free to get from people who can’t feed their spoiled hay to their livestock. So sorry for your bad luck. It’s so disappointing to lose a garden or even just a crop after all the optimism and effort that was put into it.
