  • I did a little research and most feel that hairy carrots are the result of over feeding. The only thing on my garden in this area was beans and peas so maybe they fixed too much nitrogen? No "fertilizer" was added.

  • If that is Johnson grass, you need to get it out of there before it starts spreading rhizomes. Did you know that some states require landowners to kill off this invasive and noxious weed?

    Speaking of gardens, have you ever heard of Black Beauty tomatoes?

  • Pretty sure it is Johnson grass and yes it has nice juicy rhizomes. I'm afraid that horse has left the barn before I ever got here.

    I'm surprised it does so well since it is supposed to do well around water, which is something lacking this year.

    Been fighting it all this time and as you probably know, tilling it just helps it proliferate.

    I have had several black tomatoes but I am not sure about Black Beauty. Looks like a nicely formed tomato. Most of my other ones were either cherry type or real lobed.

    Palindrome, do you remember if any of those black tomatoes were Black Beauty?

  • Our dog Spottie likes to eat Japanese beetles. Can't say I've ever tasted one, but I'll get the gravy if it helps our other dogs like them too.
