The Adams County Record Wednesday, September 19, 2012 Page 5 Garden B Corner ar By Myrna Weikal -- 355-5829 - As I write this on Monday morning the middle valley is choked with smoke from surrounding range fires. My eyes are streaming, and I'm sneezing my head off. Of course, that could be from sage pollen. Or burnt sage pollen. In any case, our poor firefighters haven't caught a break lately. What we need is a good drenching rainstorm - without lightning - but it isn't likely, given our usual weather pattern. The drenching rainstorms will come about the time farmers are trying to get beets and onions out of the fields. Practically every gardener you talk to is canning causes that? I don't know whether the rust affects their flavor or not, because I won't eat them when they look like Lake pole beans I grew several years ago, but the bush beans seem to hold out against it longer. I guess I can throw all frost, like maybe 20 degrees. Does that sound right? I hope someone tells me what to dot While the brassicas might be fine in the garden for a while yet, I think time is running out for onions, and mine are still kind of small. The tops haven't all fallen over, but they will soon. I was in the process of dead- heading the flower beds when I was brought up short by a very LARGE spider hanging upside down in the hollyhocks. It is still there, and I haven't made any progress since. I'm not afraid of spiders. No, really. My mother taught me that spiders are our friends, and I believe her. The reason I didn't Organizations / Boards something. I've canned about 20 pints of salsa and dried about a gallon of tomatoes so far, with about that much more to do over the next few weeks. In most of the upper country a light frost touched down for a couple of nights last week, enough to blacken the leaves on the cucumbers, beans, tomatoes, peppers and squash. I gave the last of the cukes to the chickens, picked most of the peppers that had any size to them and all the tomatoes that had a little blush on them. The beans seem to be carrying on okay, and I get a few for dinner every couple days, although they are getting rusty. What My new friend: a Banded Garden Spider that - just not appetizing. A the beans to the chickens now. I told you about the weird broccoli I grew this year. Well, it's starting to put out normal- looking side shoots now, in the cooler weather. I have to give it credit for toughing it out through the hot summer, but I'm still not going to plant that variety next_ year. My Brussels sprouts are looking very good, still growing, not many cabbage worms (that I can see). So when do I cut them? I've never had Brussels sprouts survive this long in my garden. I am thinking about leaving them in until we get a deeper Continued from front page Engineer Doug Argo went over preliminary ITD plans for rebuilding part of Illinois Avenue and Michigan Street as a component of the Highway 95 bypass project. Much discussion centered on the curb design at street corners and how easy or quick internet search indicates that rust is caused by either a mosaic virus or any of several soil fungi, all of which are encouraged by humid conditions. One extension service site suggests watering them at the base of the plant, not with overhead sprinklers. I water with soaker hoses and still get it every year, though usually just at the end of the season when I'm getting tired of beans anyway. Some bean varieties are more resistant than others. I had a bad case of rust on the Kentucky Blue leakage is also occurring around the outside, so there's no way to be sure if this will solve the problem entirely. In any case, the least expensive alternative to replacing the manhole is relining it with resin type coating that will seal it. The cost is estimated at Parks & Rec Board Meeting First Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm at City Hall. difficult various designs make it to plow snow around them. Another major point of discussion was how to handle the leaking manhole at the sewer ponds. Leakage is occurring through the manhole, and that has to be fixed.

Are you seeing lots of spiders and flies in your house now? They seem to make an annual migration indoors this time of year. It's not all bad. The spiders catch the flies and snag moths and gnats and those nasty leaf-sucking things that destroyed my V'trginia creeper, but I draw the line at spider nests in the house.
