The weather here in Central NC has pretty much sucked this weekend I had planned on working on an outside compost bin yesterday but I don't like working in the rain, so instead I built a worm compost bin inside and today they are happly munching on tea bag and coffee filters gonna give them a little time before I start feeding them alittle more variety. I read all of the post about worm tubes and plan on doing that also when I can afford to buy PVC. Hope next weekend is alot better 3 out of 5 days next week is surpposed to be rain and cool yippee.

Northeastern NC is cold and rainy this weekend. Forced me to do housework - no excuse. ugggg! Also replanted some peppers, 1 tomato and 1 cuke that a. didn't germinate, b. didn't make it, c. got snapped off when the orchid fell over.

Also started some Obu, an edible asian gourd and thai long green eggplant for my DIL.

But I did harvest my first bok choy yesterday. Did a stir fry.

I read somewhere, I think someones signature here, that God made rainy days so gardeners could do housework. But here I sit on my computer, looking out my window.

I think I might start some tomato seeds in the green house this week I can't find any plant that I like, but for the success I have had with them the last 5 year I might not even try this year, forever bloom end rot.

somebody on the forum recommends epsom salts, powdered milk and a match head in every hill of tomatos. Powdered milk is for blossom end rot I think.

Look for resistant varieties. I have also heard that consistant watering helps to combat BER. Carolyn Phillips grows THOUSANDS of tomatoes and may have more suggestions for you.

It's currently about 34°F here... beautiful clear sky.... but bad for crops. I covered the garden with a big tarp. Hopefully all the veggies will be ok. Everything is frost resistant but I'm still worried when the forecast calls for 27°F.

Anyway... worrying doesn't do anything for them. Let's just hope the tarp does its job.Smile

Some good news....the snow that was forecasted for last night (up to an inch) was barely a dusting, and everything looked ok at 7:00 this morning (when it was about 28°F).
