Looks like Venice.

I may try a chicken wire setup like that next year. This year I used typical circular cages. They did fine until the plants outgrew them. Some of them WAAAAYYYYYY outgrew the cages.

I pulled up all of my tomato plants about 3 weeks ago. For one, they weren't producing worth a shit anymore. Mold had killed off a lot of the foliage which was causing most of the fruits to get burned by the sun. In addition to that, 90% of the fruits had blossom end rot by the time they matured. Also... I was just sick to damn death of spending several hours every week picking basket after basket after basket after basket of tomatoes. That was in addition to picking tons of okra and cucumbers. Enough is E-damn-nough! I pulled up all the cucumbers at the same time, even though they were still doing fine. Last week I got rid of all the cantaloupe vines. Most of the mellons had matured and been picked or ravaged by ants and bores.

All I have left now is okra, a few bell pepper plants, and my single tabasco pepper plant which is exploding with peppers. The damn things are almost too hot to eat. You just about have to wear rubber gloves when eating them. I got some of the juice under my fingernails a few weeks ago and my fingers were burning like hell all week long.

No pics this time.

Duno if this fits into gardening,

We have some kind of a cane plant,  brought it inside the garage in october.

Thing sat there fine till last week right before christmas my wife decided to water it.
hadnt had a drop since it got cold.  Plant was fine,  maybe lil brown on some of the tips
but the rest was nice and green.   She gave it 2 cups of warm water and over night every
single leaf is brown to the bone and wilted to the floor.

Wondering if it will come back to us in the spring.

If it hasn't been watered in while and it was still relatively green, probably shocked it. Also, if it was used to receiving rain water as opposed to tap water, that would explain it too. Some cities use more chlorine and calcium in their water supply than other places. That's the main reason tap water should only be used for watering as a last resort. Rain water or distilled water is best. Even so called "purified" bottled water isn't the best thing, they add sodium and calcium to that too. Chances are it would've eventually turned brown and lost all it's leaves anyway if its kept indoors somewhere.

And speaking of watering, I guess this perfect opportunity to tell you about a lesser known gardening remedy: willow water. If you're trying to root a cutting, or just give a plant an extra boost, theres no need to buy any of that chemically produced rooting compound. This stuff works just as good if not BETTER than anything you could buy. It's winter right now, so this isn't really doable at the moment. The tender spring tips and leaves of willow branches work best for this because they contain the highest concentration of rhizocaline which is in the protoplasm of the newest growth. Cut it up into about 1 inch pieces and drop a few handfuls into a 5 gallon bucket and fill it with water. Let it steep for about 7 days, then strain and decant it into canning jars and store it in the refrigerator to keep it fresh. If you're gonna root a cutting, let the cut end soak in the solution for a bit, then put it in place in the soil and water it in some of the willow water. You can also use it for sick trees too. If you have a tree with oozing sores or cankers (especially fruit trees like peach, apple, cherry, apricot, and plum), you can put the solution into a spray bottle and spray it directly on the affected area. Georgia is known for it's peaches, and peaches are a real bitch to grow because they're so susceptible to late frost and diseases. Some of the old fart longtime farmers from my grandfathers side have had the same healthy peach trees in their orchards for years, they swear by this stuff.

So is that YOUR crop, or someone elses? I *cough*may or may not have tried to produce my own crop this past summer, but the little critters that infest the woods may or may not have mowed it down as it sprouted. I know this because I may or may not have found mounds upon mounds of little rabbit shit balls all over the place as well as hundreds of rabbit holes, mole holes, squirrel holes and even one big damn muskrat burrow. I've also got hordes of coyotes running all over the place out here. I can always hear them at night, about 6 to 10 of them all howling and calling to another pack of them on the other side of the river not too far from my house.



This is one of the only times I don't appreciate "nudity".

That's not mine either. I have no idea who laid those limbs around the part of the soil where the seeds were sown. Must've been the neighbors kids. Those little rascals.

Likewise I have no idea where this bud was grown (and the 20 others of the same batch), and those are not my fingers:




EXTREEEEEEME CLOSEUP!




I also can't tell you that it was very tasty and incredibly stoney, because I don't smoke weed and didn't harvest this last year.

That appears to be growing outdoors, yet also appears to be that which normally is only grown indoors. Do elaborate on how this unidentified plant which is not yours was grown.
