Morning everyone!

Again, I have to apologize for not taking a real active part in things right now. Just terribly busy with life & work & stuff, you know?

So, it's June... Golly Moses, this year is FLYING by!

My area is seeing rain on almost a daily basis. Weather folks are saying to expect it for a couple of more weeks. And, of course, we're hitting the prime picking season! I know Yolos is about 70 miles south of me, but I've got some serious garden envy going on seeing her harvests already, lol!

The Old Farmer's Almanac is saying this about weather for GA, SC, NC, & up into VA:

JUNE 2017: temperature 75° (3° below avg.); precipitation 5.5" (1" above avg.); Jun 1-10: Sunny; cool, then warm; Jun 11-14: Tropical storm threat; Jun 15-19: Sunny, nice; Jun 20-30: A few t-storms; warm, then cool.

JULY 2017: temperature 82° (avg.); precipitation 4.5" (2" above avg. north, 2" below south); Jul 1-3: Sunny, cool; Jul 4-11: A few t-storms, warm; Jul 12-16: Sunny, hot; Jul 17-24: T-storms inland; sunny, hot coast; Jul 25-31: P.M. t-storms, warm.

I've looked at the NOAA predictions, but am having problems making heads or tails out of it... But I suspect it's more of the same, lol.

So what can we do in the beautiful month of June? LOTS!

According to Gardenate.com, we should be getting a whole lot of stuff out of our pots & in the ground:

Beans - dwarf (also French beans, Bush beans) Plant in garden.
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) Plant in garden.
Celery Plant in garden.
Chilli peppers (also Hot peppers) Plant in garden.
Cowpeas (also Black eye peas, Southern peas) Plant in garden.
Dill Plant in garden.
Endive Plant in garden.
Kohlrabi Plant in garden.
Luffa (also Loofah, plant sponge) Plant in garden.
Marrow Plant in garden.
Okra (also Ladyfinger, gumbo) Plant in garden.
Parsley (also curly leaf parsley or flat leaf (Italian) parsley) Plant in garden.
Parsnip Plant in garden.
Pumpkin Plant in garden.
Rockmelon (also Canteloupe) Plant in garden.
Savory - summer savory (also 'Bean Herb') Plant in garden.
Savory - winter savory (also Savory) Plant in garden.
Strawberries (from seeds) Plant in garden.
Strawberry Plants Plant in garden.
Sweet corn (also maize) Plant in garden.
Sweet Marjoram (also Knotted marjoram) Plant in garden.
Tomato Plant in garden.
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) Plant in garden.

You'll notice that I count on Gardenate.com a lot. Many other sites have gone to chart-type listings. This is just easier. But they're all pretty well saying the same thing.

So what's happening in YOUR garden right now??

Already harvested garlic, some of the onions, fava beans and English peas.  Leeks are still growing and green.  Just started harvesting corn.  Potatoes will be ready in the next few weeks.  Tomatoes are growing like crazy and ripening but with all this rainy weather they are starting to become diseased as usual.  Rain is washing away any fungicide I spray.  Cucumbers, squash and zucchini just starting to flower.  Cucumbers are getting Downy Mildew and rain is washing away any fungicide I spray on them.  Pole beans are just starting to climb up the trellis.  Just planted some bush beans and Lady cowpeas.  Waiting on all the onions to mature and then will plant White Acre cowpeas.  Waiting on the potatoes to mature and then will plant Pinkeye Purple Hull cowpeas.  Will plant Okra as the corn matures in the next few weeks.  Lettuce is starting to bolt.  Amaranth is growing well except it is an aphid magnet.  Artichokes are still growing and the aphids have not found them yet.  Ants are crawling all over the place.  I am trying Terro Stakes everywhere I see them.
