Low ouput in my NC garden

Post  gear8509 on 8/10/2010, 9:39 am

This is my first real SFG. I have battled beetles, drought, and heat this summer.
I am disappointed with the yield so far. We only have one zucchini and one a couple
tomatoes to show for all of our hard work. There seems to be some critter eating
our tomatoes and pulling up our onions. How do you combat hungry little visitors?

What am I doing wrong?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Low Output in My NC Garden

Post  junequilt on 8/10/2010, 6:32 pm

Neighbor to the north, I feel your pain! I'm in the Columbia, South Carolina area and it has indeed been a tough summer for heat and bugs.

Can you surround your SFG with hardware cloth? If whatever's eating your plants is coming from outside the box, that should put a stop to it. Not the easiest thing to do, I know, but it's less expensive than weaponry and ammo.

Having nothing to do with the muncher (whatever it may be), have you mulched your plants? That might help cool down their roots, supply them with some additional nutrients, and give them a new lease on life. It worked with our cukes.
