Garden Corner This past week brought opportunities for many garden conversations, so I have a surfeit of material for this column. Everyone agrees that this has been a very challenging gardening year. Seeds refused to ger- minate, peas were freeze- dried in an ill-timed frost, tomatoes refused to set, bean blossoms were reluctant to form beans, raspberries cooked on the canes, and the ring- necked doves ate what few strawberries grew. But it hasn't been all bad news. Art and Sandy Harris were surprised to discover a nice-sized cantaloupe, a volunteer apparently brought in with compost. Barbara McLay is enjoying a bumper crop of cucumbers. There have been no reports of serious infestations of squash bugs, grasshoppers, or aphids, and Halloween needn't be cancelled - the Bonnet pumpkin patch seems to be surviving its visitation by squash borers. I'm still harvesting side shoots of delightfully worm-free broccoli, even after freezing gallons of it, all from four little plants. Corn did remarkably well in my garden, and the small tomatoes that I like to dry are coming on gangbusters in spite of a slow start. The romas, not so much, but I will have enough for a couple batches of salsa. I thought the eggplants were done, and I was about to pull up the plants when I noticed developing fruit and new "Like you, I love living in this area.

By Myrna Weikal -- 355-5829 - blossoms. So what can we learn from this year's challenges? 1 - Be careful about starting too early in the spring. Think of early May's warm days as nothing but a tease. Our real growing season - frost-free days - began toward the end of May, with the soil temperature taking a bit longer still to increase. 2 Be careful about ending too early. Things that might appear to be dead may only be winter- damaged. Given time, they may come out of it. (A case in point, the pine trees that I thought might have pine-wilt were just suffering from winter-kill, and now seem to have come through it just fine. Good thing I didn't chop them down.) Also, garden plants seem to be going through a second life, now that the temperatures are more moderate, so don't rush to till it all under just yet. S - Pay attention to what did well this year, and plant more of it next year. Look for heat tolerant varieties in next year's seed catalogs. Chances are we'll see more of the same conditions. Falling under the heading of garden surprises: amaranth is growing out on the edge of my driveway. Why there, in dry, compacted gravel? Could it be that I have completely misunderstood the requirements of this plant? Garden huckleberry, started from seeds given as a gift by a seed company, is doing surprisingly well for me, considering I hadn't a clue what it was or what it wanted when I started it. Not a true huckleberry, it is actually in the nightshade family. The purple berries are edible when ripe, but bland. My intention is to let the birds eat them, since they were robbed of their usual fare of chokecherries this year. Neighbor Erin Whitener asks if she can cut back the unruly asparagus fronds. I advise against it. They may be ugly, but they are still feeding the roots, the source of all those yummy spears we harvest in the spring. Let a hard frost kill it back first, then cut it all flush to the ground and cover it with a couple inches of composted horse manure, and you will have a beautiful, long-lived, productive asparagus patch. I had (note the use of past tense) a blackberry bush in my fenced garden: I thought I could treat it like raspberries, trained to a vertical growth pattern. NOT. This plant refused to be trained. It sprawled, it meandered, it slithered and wormed its way across my garden floor. It covered one end.of my strawberry row, overpowered an entire cucumber plant, and became a hideout for huge patches of bindweed. There were berries snuggled down in the depths, but had I even been aware of them I would not have been able to pick them from the wickedly thorr/y canes without shedding blood. I decided that the plant was an instrument of the devil, and removed it this weekend. 7 RIVERS LIVESTOCK COMMISSION Check our website for details on upcoming sales. Office: 208-365-4401 1611 W.
