Forgot to mention that the pole beans plants between the passion fruit vines have been harvested, and are ready to be replaced. I just haven't decided what to replace them with yet.

I bought seeds for a RKN resistant passion fruit, and I can't wait to have that gergerminated so I can use it as root stock.

Basically, the first box is for herbs with the obvious exceptions. The next, is for leafy veggies, while the third is for the nightshade veggies and "friends".

Dstack, Thank you for the wonderful Florida garden tour, especially for the snow bound folks.

Marie, please show your large garden. It's been a while since we have seen a large overview.

Right now there's really nothing in there.  And I haven't finished the clean up yet, so I'd be completely embarrassed!

But I'll get to it as soon as I have some time...!  (BUSY, busy right now!)

Yes, we all do.  My pole beans are expired and ready to be pulled out and replaced.  I totally understand about not being in showcase.condition from time to time. In my SFG there wasn't much worth seeing the past few months.

Dstack, I think yours is larger than mine by a long shot.  I've only got 25x35 feet out of our 1/3 acre.  Maybe I just don't understand how small your back yard is...

I can understand why your garden wasn't giving much during the summer.  But it's certainly made up for it!!!

It's supposed to be nice today.  We've got a meeting with one of our Dept of Natural Resources guys this afternoon and we've got a LOT to discuss.  (We're doing some work for them and talking about some volunteer stuff.)  But I'll try to get out there today & get pix.

Thanks for the reminder, guys...

   BIG hug

Hi Jerry.  Welcome to the SFG party!

Saw your first post is in response to Dstack's video tour of his incredible yard.

You'll have a lot of fun here (not to mention getting some good, practical advice.)

Thanks Marie! 

Hi Jerry!  Yes, we sure do have a lot of challenges here!  One of my biggest has been root knot nematodes, but now instead of panicking when I discovered infected roots, I plant something there that RNKs doesn't like such as French Marigolds, or a leafy green that doesn't seem to be effected by them. 

BT and Neem Oil are my two best friends in my garden. BT for controlling caterpillars and larvae, and Neem for controlling powder mildew, killing ants and other bugs.  As someone kept recommending here, I finally decided that it's good to sprays aphids with the right setting on the garden hose.

Oh, and by the end of next May or the beginning of June I plan to either partially or completely solarize all three beds since I've already found RKN infected roots in all three.

dstack, that tour was a delight to watch!  I appreciate your comment about embracing Florida weather.  I have had to come to "embrace" Georgia weather after growing up and living all my life in California.  Nine years later... well, I embrace the fact that I now experience seasons.

Tell me, your licorice basil... does it really have licorice notes in the flavor?  Our family loves licorice and cannot get enough of it.

Glad you enjoyed the tour Windmere. I love licorice too and that's why I grow a lot of fennel. Honestly I'm disappointed in the licorice basil.  While everyone else says that they smell it, to me it smells more like Thai Basil. Next I'd like to try cinnamon basil.

Good idea. Believe it or not, these RKN infections in the photo below are on Marigolds!  It's a myth that all Marigolds are toxic to all strains of RKNs. I've learn the hard way that some marigolds can actually HOST this parasite!   French Marigolds kill the widest range of RKNs.

Can you add this to your Topic?:

Yes, I believe I have a few threads on this forum about this. I should note that my mistake was trusting a friend who said that the seeds he offered were French Marigolds. Someone else gave him seeds saying they were an old variety of French Marigolds.  Those are what ended up hosting the RKNs!  So I ended up getting some standard FMs from Lowe's and I did a test in a pot with RKN infected soil. After at least a couple of months with that Marigold in the pot (since it takes a while for Marigolds to produce the nemacide), I'm now growing a tomato plant in that same pot without a problem.

Post  dstack 12/3/2014, 9:46 am

Nematodes are one of the most plentiful organism on earth with many strains. They are like microscopic worms, and Root Knot Nematodes are parasitic to many plants in our gardens, especially in the nightshade family such as tomatoes and peppers.  They suck the productivity out of the plant, and often kills the plant.  

RKNs do not do well in rich organic material since a massive population of various other organisms becomes a hostile environment for them. But once they've infected a root that it likes, all it takes is one female to start laying eggs for there to be a problem. One female RKN can lay up to 500 eggs at a time!  So you can imagine the population explosion that can happen.
