TO WATER OR NOT TO WATER

Finally a brief respite from the seemingly endless rain! On the plus side, plants that did not drown, rot, or wash away now have much larger root systems. In ground beds that means the root systems have grown deep and wide so if there should be a hot dry period heading our way, those plants are ready to withstand it. In containers - pots and hanging baskets - it may be a much different story.When selected correctly, containers have adequate drainage holes to allow excess water to drain away. Hanging baskets usually have no concerns with adequate drainage. Both of these share 2 areas of concern for the gardener. During the prolonged rain we have had in the area, additional watering needs have been minimal. Don't get complacent though. While Nature was taking care of the routine maintenance, the plants in those containers were doing the same thing their soil planted buddies were doing - growing vigorous root systems. The big difference now is that containers have a defined and limited…See More

Five ways renters can improve their kitchen

There are several downsides to renting instead of owning a home. But perhaps the biggest drawback is the feeling that there’s nothing you can do to improve your living space. You’re at the mercy of the homeowner when it comes to doing any home improvement projects. But just because you’re renting doesn’t mean you’re stuck with an inadequate kitchen, here are five ways that renters can improve their kitchen without getting in trouble with the homeowner.Extra storage spaceNot having adequate storage space can be frustrating if you’re a renter. You don’t have the power to go and have new cupboards installed. That doesn’t mean there are no options left, however. You can still create a little extra storage space by hanging a ceiling-mounted pot rack. This will free up some cupboard space by getting all of your pots and pans out of them. This will entail drilling a few holes into the wall but you can patch them up easily enough when it’s time to move out.Replacing the hardwareThe hardware…See More

BROWN PATCH RUNS AMUCK!

Joe Rimelspach reported on this week's BYGL call that the heat, rain, and humidity have created the perfect storm for turf diseases, particularly BROWN PATCH (Rhizoctonia solani) on tall fescue in home lawns. Samples have come into the lab from Northeast and Central Ohio.Brown patch is a fungal disease that causes blighted brown patches on turf that are unsightly in home lawns or fields alike. These brown, tan, or yellowish spots can appear quickly. Individual blades will develop lesions that are brown to tan with darker rings around them. In some areas moisture and humidity are so high that the gray fluffy mycelium, or fungal strands, of the offending organism are visible on the grass.To combat these diseases, there is a suggestion that is somewhat counter intuitive to regular practices for lawn care. In the heat of the summer, higher mowing height is generally helpful for establishing dense root systems that can withstand the droughty conditions of summer. However, for brown patch…See More
