When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama.

August gardeners in Florida are busy readying beds, gathering seeds & planting. Harvest from late spring & early summer's garden continues. Don't forget to rotate your crops, for example..legumes (beans/peas), followed by heavy eaters like corn/tomatoes, then root crops & leafy greens. Surround with herbs & flowers when possible. Below is what each part of Florida should plant from seed this month.

North FL any beans, Broccoli, cauliflower, collards, corn cucumbers, onions, southern peas (cow, black eyed), peppers any squash, Tomato, turnips & watermelon.

Quoting spathy:
Sky
You still here?
I have a question.
How to you know when sweet potatoes are ready without grubbing around the roots? Mine have been growing from about late April/early May. No sign of vines dying yet. In fact almost just the opposite.
I grubbed around in late/mid July and found 2" swollen roots. I am too paranoid to grub around much more.
Any helpful hints?
Hi Spathy - Skye probably knows much better than I, but I have been growing all kinds of sweet potatoes out on the Space Coast in my yard as ground-cover after I got rid of my grass. Nobody in my house likes to eat them except me so usually only dig up a few for the holidays. There hasn't been a hard freeze here and even light frosts are rare so they just keep growing and spreading, they have been growing for over two years now without dying. The older ones get bigger and really gnarly and and the fibrous parts need trimmed off but otherwise they are fine. I have all kinds, kinds I started from regular and fancy store-bought, ornamentals of all colors...they all make potatoes. They all keep growing and spreading. One red-leaved variety has spread like a weed into my back yard.

So I think the answer to your question depends on where you live. If you get a frost every year best harvest time would be right before the first hard frost...keep a close eye on your forecasts. If you are hungry sooner, a little gentle poking around to check for a couple larger tubers probably won't hurt much...jmho.

P.S. Found a couple good links: 1.Harvesting Sweet Potatoes

Been watching Leslie steadily bobbing along the 15th parallel. Predictions say she's going to miss the islands, but there's no sign of it yet. She's within less than her own diameter of the Lesser Antilles. If she's going to miss, she better get on the stick.

Color me skeptical.

Finn~ Get to feeling better. Hope you get internet too. I'll pat that to the next one if I don't see you.

Wab~ according to NOAA no he didn't. Dvorak seems to think he made it to cat 3. I'll give him an outside chance of an upgrade post season.

Thanks for reminding me to share that blue moon I found. I think they snatched it from the gallery for being manipulated..

Bug~ I give all the credit for the blue moon to katy99780. Sometimes manipulated has it's place:)

Too bad about work. I'll have to see your pics.



Phish couch tour starts tonight for the three day Labor day run in Denver. Trey did a radio show this morning about it.

Hi, Skye.

Love your blue moon. Manipulated or not, it's cool! I'm going to try to get a look at it tonight, if it doesn't cloud back over. I noticed last night that it was almost full.

Tuesday, when you needed an ark to get out of town (or a kayak) the girls at work didn't believe me when I told them that the rain was from Isaac.

"But he's headed for New Orleans."

"Yeah, but we're getting that breakaway band of rain."

Had to show them on the radar.

Thought I'd never get home. There's a link on my blog to some pics. Kayakers paddling through the City Market, stalled cars, etc.

It was a mess but it did drain off and the roads were clear in time for the morning commute. Darn it.....

Hi all!
Yes was great to hear from the "swampdawg" :)
Kirk is really cute!
Again without internet, checking in from store computer today. Dang, we are dangerously dependent on being able to connect via cyberspace!!! Hubby and I are down with a bad flu, had to start antibiotics :(

Hoping September will bring good things for us all!

Just in case I can't get online Sunday, an early wish:

Seems like much of the communication around there is down. It was great to see DocintheSwamp check in this morning.

I've got a halo around the sun here. Took pics to upload later.

Finally got that weak tornado up I saw on my trip. About 2 mins after the pic it stopped twisting & opened up into a rain shower.

Model verification on Isaac~ not the easiest storm with the best 24hr averages being in the 40nm range.. Best models began with the letter G & T (been the trend this season). Fim models did good. APS models outshined them all out to 48hrs, but I expect partly because they didn't run it earlier in the storm when Isaac wasn't as well developed. Overall OFCL was right up there with the best models.

Rob~ I haven't heard from anyone. They should be okay though. Niece was cute..

Wab~ That surge is nothing to mess around with. Kirk being a fish storm is part of what makes him so cute..

I had heard there was flash flooding in Orlando, FL today but dang..



Wow!

Thanks for the tune! Came by to see if you'd hear from the family. Glad they are okay. Slidell looked pretty scary from where I'm sitting!

Congrats on the new niece!

They've got the buoy to help locate Leslie. Dvorak was a shade north of NHC at 11pm. Since that came out Dvorak shows a hard 0.26deg jog south to 14.72N 46.86W. Click pic for java loop.

Hope Leslie strengthens & turns soon...

Most my family is holed up just east of that evacuation over the Tangipahoa Dam near McComb. They lost power yesterday & was on generators. Can't get a hold of them today. Land-line seems out.

Big picture the flat ridge over Isaac has really been drawn south on the west side of the storm. Seems to be drying the storm up on that side & forming a wall to the west.

I know gone off on a tangent.. Radiation network.. Looks like most those areas in the dry air there in the jet stream north of Isaac has had a bit higher radiation lately. Not sure if it's local or drifted in. I hadn't really been keeping up with the Fukushima explosions/debri burning & such since that one a few months ago.. Seems like something is drifting over..

The tree farm is taking a strong band..

The radioactive sinkhole should be fully in the eye of ISAAC soon.

I'm thinking we will continue to see Isaac wobble slowly WNW for now, then hook up through LA probably clip maybe the east & the NE edge of TX, east side of OK may get a bit of rain, then move North up the west side of the MS River..leaving the moister east side to improve shipping, over MO and on to IL to kick off the fall planting season. I'm leaning just a touch west of OFCL.


This is near Baton Rouge..all is good now but some flooding is forecast.




I should be made an Aunt once again before the day is through..best of luck to my 1/2 sister:)

Finn checking in, all well here except for the flooding, which is receding. FINALLY got internet and TV today, been without them since last Saturday. I don't know which was worse, not being able to follow WU-blogs or the flooding...
Posted my local Isaac report on my blog.

Good to see everybody, hope our DocNDswamp and other WU-friends are safe - and all others too!

Well Bolaven made landfall earlier this "afternoon" near northern Korea and District Of Northeastern China with a pressure of 980 hPa.

Quite the difference since it made landfall over the southwestern Japan islands with a pressure of 910 hPa.

Hey Patti~ That is good for the compost.

So glad your house didn't flood:) Hope the garden pulls through..

Only about 2" here, could really have used a little more.

Hi Skye, hope you are still here.

I have a question.. all that "stuff" that floats on top of the storm water and is left on your front side walk.. looks like dead grass clippings, small twigs, etc. Could that go into my compost? or should I just put it in trash???

I don't want to risk any seeds but it looks mostly like grass clippings from recent mowing and small tips. But I probably have a good 5 Gal bucket full..


Let me know..

Did you all get a lot of flooding?
Thanks.
Patti

Wellington got dumped on yesterday. Bottom video here is the Wellington Showgrounds underwater. People are also looking for places to move horses to. Only takes a few days of standing in water & many of their hooves will kinda falloff.

Awful to see a line of showers settling up this afternoon there.

Wab~ Good point about the tornadoes. He wasn't the most squally thing ever here so I'm hoping there won't be too many. FL got only a handful, but we also tasted more the piece that got away than Isaac.

Red~ Keep us updated!
