|Lettuce going to seed.|
Last week while we were camping on Salt Spring Island the Okanagan was hot, hot, hot! When we returned our grass was crispy yellow but the tomatoes and peppers were in heaven. The plants are loaded and I am waiting patiently to pluck off the first ripe tomatoes. The squash plants are producing but not as much as I expected. There seems to be some blossom end rot and poor pollination. I’m going to try hand pollinating to see if that results in more fruit. As for the blossom end rot I have read that a calcium foliage spray can help but I need to do more research.
