Has the rain hurt you down there ? Its raining as I type this, been raining most of the month. I haven't been in my garden in 2 weeks =cause its a SWAMP!I too have a few seeds left over as well as 3 squash plants and am totally out of space. The seeds can just wait till next year. The squash plant I'm not sure what to do with them. I might use them for replacements to the other squash plants in the garden. From what I recall squash is short lived and some are already producing. Which means they'll be finished in a few weeks. We'll see.
When do you add the Epsom Salt? Or I should say, when is it too late to add it?I give them heavy doses of calcium like eggshell and Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate)and on some I add chunks of Sheet Rock (gypsum board). Calcium is supposedly helpful in preventing splitting but some of them are splitting anyway. Just too much rain.
Thank you!Yes just sprinkle it around the bae of the plants when they are blossoming. Some might call it the yellow flower stage. It can also be watered in. About a teaspoon per plant, or was that a tablespoon? Don't want to over do it. It is magnesium sulfate but it's a salt as well. I dont really measure, I just put a couple of plastic spoonfuls in the watering can. Then water around the bottoms.
