What do you recommend? Do you cut the top of the leader stem or just the flowers? How long before the first frost do you do that? Are there any other crops I should do this to? Thank you! I love listening to you guys and appreciate all your work. I heard about it from a friend and wasn't sure if it was a gardening myth or not. I thought "I better ask Joey and Holly because they would know the truth Catherine A: Q About when should the spring onions start growing the flowers, does it have to be a certain amount of years old. And I planted a spring onions I got from a store by taking the root part. A:It takes 2 years for an onion to get to seed. If you get a store onion it will go to see the first year BUT you do not know what type of onion it is. type meaning long day sort sort day or mid day length onion. to get a bulb you have to grow the right kind for the area you live Q My lawn had multiple brown spots. I initially thought that the grass had become dormant due to our dry weather. After several heavy rains, there were no changes. The grass remains dry and raking (garden rake) leaves the ground practically bare. I don't think this is a matter of dormancy. Any ideas? Joe A: This is the second year my Amish Paste tomatoes have been a disaster! Last year the rains made them burst and rot on the vine and this year even the "good" ones are rotting inside. My German Pink tomatoes are big and wonderful. I'm in the city of Milwaukee. Scott A.Thanks for your question. These problems are due to inconsistent watering. Amish paste is more sensitive to that. Consistent watering is key.
