irrigation in the HOT weather
How about this heat and dry weather!! What a difference from last year. My plants seem to be deep rooted enough to go for 3-4 days without water, even though we have temps well into the 90's (F) all day. Then they need a long deep watering.
This is great for avoiding fungal problems (like last years late blight). I'm hoping for a nice tomato harvest starting soon.
I thought maybe my potatoes would be ready and pulled up a plant last Friday. Not! (I put away potato salad recipe.) There were lots of little marble sized tubers on the roots. No edible sized ones. Oh well. I'll wait.
