Community garden plants are maturing and blooming
MAY 15, 2012

Growers of The Ladybug Patch have an artsy sign greeting their neighbors to the community garden at Greer Memorial Hospital property. The weeds have been maintained to enhance the garden’s growth.


The Community Garden is starting to look like a garden now. Plants have matured and are beginning to bloom and set fruit.  

1. Watch your tomatoes and squash for signs of blossom end rot caused by a lack of calcium in the soil.  You can add calcium with bone meal or gypsum.  Both of these amendments are available in small (1-2 pound) packages at the home improvement stores and garden shops.  The feed and seed stores will have those products in larger packages.  Do not take up your plants if you see blossom end rot (black or grey spots on the end of the fruit away from the stem).  Simply pinch off the damaged fruit and dispose of it in the compost pile. 

2.  Tend your plants each time you go to the garden.  Look for insect damage.  Remove wilted stems or branches.  Continue to sucker the tomatoes and pinch off excess blooms for larger, faster growing fruit.  If you planted a determinate variety of tomato it will set an exact number of fruits.  Removing a few will make for larger healthier plants and harvest.
