Also I’ve kinda been at a loss as to when to pick my corn. Everyone says when the silk dies and the kernels are milky. Well mine have been like that but they just didn’t seem ready to pick to me for some reason. But when I looked out the window today and a bunch of black birds were eating them I figured they were ready! I’m about to shuck them and see if I was right. Ha. I’m learning through all of this trial and error and I’ll be more knowledgeable next year.
I noticed yesterday that some of my tomatoes were finally turning red and I got so excited!! Until I took a good look at them and realized they were being eaten and they were were molding. All but one of the red ones were rotted. Grrr. I picked the halfway decent red one and I’m letting it ripen on my window sill. Anyway, I need advice on how to prevent this from happening!! Here’re pictures of my fruit (Sorry they’re blurry but my camera was not focusing right):
Okay experienced gardeners what’s my problem and how do I fix it? I need your help!!!
