Through the years Invoice and I had associates – a pair we didn’t see usually, however who all the time appeared to point out up in our life after we wanted assist solely they may present.

Invoice died in 2015 and the final I noticed Mark and Lucille was in 2017 once they did a lot for me on the final Invoice Martz occasion. And as all the time – with out cost.

A lot to my shock I heard from Mark once more the primary of August.

A Video within the worst of instances?

In the middle of our dialog he introduced up the subject of doing a video of me within the backyard, one thing he had requested me about since earlier than Invoice died.

I alway stated “no” for numerous causes.

This time I stated “sure”, though it was in all probability the worst of instances. By the point the video can be filmed it might be the tip of August and between seasons within the backyard. 

No Shock – Issues Did Not Go In response to Plan

In all of the movies I’ve seen produced by Mark, he has virtually whole management.  For instance – see the video he did of Invoice on www.billmartz.com.

I didn’t assume that would work in my backyard.  Strolling house can accommodate single file — however in the case of a couple of particular person transferring round – that’s a problem.

Nonetheless – I deliberate the backyard “tour” and we set the date for Aug twentieth.

It was scorching, the solar was brighter than we had hoped, Mark’s again began bothering him, and he needed to name it quits in the midst of what I had deliberate to point out.

I assumed at size about not displaying the video.  However then determined it has sufficient in it that could be useful to you in your backyard.

Right here’s what I by no means received to point out you:

numerous others plantings of carrots.
the opposite two plantings of beans
the late plantings of cucumbers
the precise slicing of the cabbage
strawberry beds.
the pepper plant within the pile of decayed natural materials that some would  have referred to as weeds
extra tomato crops
However most of all I remorse not having the prospect to point out broadcasting a canopy crop right into a mattress.  (A reader from Alaska <now dwelling in Virginia> had by no means had an event to broadcast seed. I discovered how to do this troublesome to elucidate with the written phrase and thought this the proper alternative to have proven her in a video.)

Somethings to Preserve in Thoughts as You Watch

Speaking within the backyard to associates is rather a lot totally different than writing a submit and with the ability to assume issues by.

For instance, I inadvertently stated “baking powder” slightly than “baking soda” when speaking about powdery mildew on cucumbers. Right here’s the submit that offers you the proper info: https://tendingmygarden.com/powdery-mildew-ways-to-deal-with-it/

My clarification for saving cucumber seed was temporary within the video.  You need to use the precise directions for saving cuke seed as saving tomato seed. Right here’s the submit you want: https://tendingmygarden.com/seed-saving-tomatoes-how-to/

When speaking about when cabbages can be harvested I based mostly that on when my cabbages had been planted this yr.  That’s actually what it’s important to think about when anticipating your harvest date.

I’ve a good friend, an skilled typical gardener of fifty years or extra in Virginia, who has instructed me that it’s not potential to develop cabbages in the summertime in Virginia.  However I do.  I additionally plant within the fall to winter over.  I’m making an attempt numerous various things so I’ll be capable of be taught first hand what really can and may’t be accomplished.

When you’ve got questions as you watch the video please be at liberty to jot down to me and ask.

Will There Be One other Video?

I’m undecided.

I feel it is perhaps potential to do one in late fall displaying how I defend my lettuce beds by the winter.

Every video might all the time be the final one.

Ultimate Thought

Whether or not I even think about doing one other video will rely rather a lot in your suggestions.  In any case, it’s for you I’m doing them.

Hope you’ll let me know what your ideas are.
