Pulled some Giant of Sicily radishes, and most of them made it into the house. Very Happy

Yes, surprising that we are so hot and dry this early in the year. I am so glad that all of the beds have drip irrigation on a timer. Last evening they got an extra watering, though, while I was applying the second batch of beneficial nematodes.

OG-What are beneficial nematodes and why do you add/apply them? Have not heard about that before.

They destroy a long list of pests, including slugs, snails, sowbugs, grubs, and root knot nematodes.

There is a lengthy discussion about them on this post:  https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t15877p25-beneficial-nematodes?highlight=Nematodes

For a list of pest controlled, check out this chart: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1373/5481/files/NGGBNL5-Beneficial-Nematodes-Bulk-Label_FRONT_0a7601bc-9fc6-46cf-b781-bc8f36191de5.jpg?v=1683749582

If sowbugs are the only problem, or even if there are both sowbugs and slugs, you might be able to quickly control them with Sluggo Plus (make sure it is the Plus).

OhioGardener,

I took advantage of this cool weather we are having by us (58 degrees today!) to make this recipe using up the last of the frozen kale from last season. It is cooking as I write this, my house smells amazing! Thanks again for sharing!
