🌸 Wow the turmeric is blooming at Zilker this week. Don't miss these beautiful flowers in the Hartman Prehistoric Garden. We also have turmeric growing in the perennial beds thanks to the generous donations from member Steve. We plan to have Steve show us how to plant ginger and turmeric later this year.
🍅 We are still seeing tomato fruits. The sungolds are hanging on and our weekly foliar sprays of seaweed and insecticidal soap seem to be helping. We plan to leave some of the indeterminate varieties but also take cuttings and start new plants. See the Tim's Tomato Tip video to learn how to do this.
🍉 The watermelons are still growing and you can tell that they are ready when the closest tendril on the vine is dry and brown. If it is green it needs more time.
💦 Be sure to leave water for birds and wildlife so they don't find the water in your juicy vegetables.
