I am now a member of the weekend gardening club


I have recently accepted a CEO position in the New York Hospitality industry. I can now tell you first hand, what adjustments I have had to make.

It seems as though I have a new meadow of weeds in the garden. It is my priority to weed the actual beds that I am growing in. Weeds compete for the nutrients and water;  Weeding on a weekly basis will avoid  “the meadow factor”

Keeping the plants watered is essential. One inch per week is a good guideline. However, more is required during consecutive 90 plus degree days. Watering in the a.m. is best before the heat settles in. Fortunately, my wife’s watering skills are better than any
automatic system!

Feeding your plants is the last of the big three items.  I want to make sure that the plants are healthy and thriving. Scratching in some fish emulsion or blood meal every two
weeks will be helpful (make sure to keep a boundary of 4 inches around the base
of each plant to prevent burning.  But NOT  THE TOMATO PLANTs. Wait until your
plants flower before feeding, as the leaves will be plentiful, but not your tomatoes.

I will continue to pass along tips and recipes as the summer unfolds!
