    Farm Field Day

  • The glory days of summer hit the Hill

    The first of the sunflowers are in bloom, so now is an exciting time at Groundhog Hill.

    One sunflower is so tall that a stepladder is required in order to cut it.  Since, I have no stepladder handy, I’m just leaving it to bloom where the honeybees can enjoy it to their little hearts’ content.

    The zinnias are going gangbusters, as well. My sister-in-law, Laura, gifted me with many packets of new seed this past Christmas in an effort to get me to grow a color other than red (the theme of 2012, I tried to explain).

  • Rain, heat has affected tobacco quality

    Heavy rain during the 4th of July weekend has led to a number of problems in tobacco such as drowning, leaf scald, black shank, wilting and dying. On surviving tobacco, there may be a rapid development of spotting on lower leaves, weather flecking and severe scorching of bottom leaves.

    Before the rains came, there were already foliar symptoms of deficiencies of nutrients like nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus, which were directly related to poor root development resulting from generally wet soil conditions that had prevailed during the early season.
