Jerusalem Artichokes (also Sunchoke) 17 Aug, Troy (USA - Zone 7b climate)
I finally got some Jerusalem Artichokes from a grocery store for $4.99 a pound and cooked them. I like them but primarily because my doctor called them a Superfood for me. But saved 4 to plant is it too late, April to October, right?
Collards (also Collard greens, Borekale) 17 Aug, Ethel woodson (USA - Zone 8a climate)
It's super hot in texas right now. Can I still sow my Vate Collard seeds right now or should i wait till Oct.,?
Basil 15 Aug, Anna (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
Basil will die off immediately in the very first frost, with black leaves you can't use. Plant it in a pot so you can move it indoors in winter, or pick and dry all the leaves before first frost and plant new seeds each year.
Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 15 Aug, Anna (Australia - cool/mountain climate)
In Sydney my cape gooseberries got black when they were grumpy about inconsistent watering, esp if the weather was very hot.

Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 14 Aug, Anna (South Africa - Semi-arid climate)
Last season our gooseberries suffered a lot from the potato beetle. What biological / organic solutions are there for the effective control or even prevention thereof? If no effective biological solution exists, are there any chemical pesticides that have been tested with cape gooseberries and are recommended with pre-harvest intervals defined? Kindly let me know.
Chinese cabbage (also Wong bok, wong nga pak, napa cabbage) 14 Aug, Ray (Australia - temperate climate)
I tried growing napa cabbage in summer, winter and spring for 2 years. germinated quickly 3-5 days if the soil is kept moist. The problem is, the never the core never coil to form a ball and started flowering.

Don'ty have too rich a soil and plant in late April May June - after the rain season has finished.
Sunflower 13 Aug, Theresa C. Dougherty (USA - Zone 7b climate)
Can I plant sunflower seeds in mid August to get fall sunflowers .? I live in zone 7 b ,I grow them first in side and plant outside .
Cabbage 13 Aug, Peter Chapman (Australia - temperate climate)
My cabbage are wilting. I have not watered them for months as I am on the Central Coast of NSW and we have had plenty of rain. The plants are mulched and I am wondering if they are holding too much water. Finger test of plants shows they are fairly damp but certainly not flooded. They are in raised beds abouit 20 cm high. Cheers Pete
Cabbage 16 Aug, (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Could be a wilt disease, too much water. I definitely would not have mulched them with all the rain you have had. Depends what your soil is like - clayish or sandy.
Sweet Potato (also Kumara) 13 Aug, Phillip (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
I lived in Maitland in the Hunter Valley until 1985. We used to get a white fleshed sweet potato that when cooked was soft, almost opaque, and very sweet. My mother would post to me when I moved to Brisbane as I couldn’t get them here! My questions is. What were they and where can I get them? Phillip Caruthers.

They grow a white purply one in Bundy - check on the internet.
Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 12 Aug, (Canada - Zone 7a Mild Temperate climate)
I don’t have a papery husk but green and brown serrated ‘things’ after flowering. When I open the brown ones they look like seed pods. What to do?
Onion 10 Aug, vivian gibson (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I have texas grano onions to make set. blue lake pole beans, purple hull peas, tomato(transplant),Bell pepper (Trans plants) when do I plant? putting them in my big pots these are all going into large pots.
Rhubarb 10 Aug, Anita ward (Australia - temperate climate)
Why does my rhubarb taste earthy. The plant is just one yr old.
Capsicum (also Bell peppers, Sweet peppers) 09 Aug, clara (Australia - temperate climate)
I know this is old but answering for future reference. Being stripped of all leaves is usually locusts. Pesticides won't help but encouraging local bird life does. Sparrows of all birds feed on their young voraciously and if you have sparrows you won't have locusts for long. Butcher birds like the adults.
Watermelon 08 Aug, Catherine E Villarreal (USA - Zone 10b climate)
When can I plant seedless watermelon seeds in zone 10b
Asparagus 08 Aug, Sheila (USA - Zone 6b climate)
One 6b - Bought crowns in late spring and they were misplaced.until now August. They are not dried out and I'd like to salvage whatever is possible. If I plant them now ANDif they grow, the season will be over and cold by October. Should I refrigerate the crowns and maybe wait til spring to plant or go ahead and put them out now? Also, would it be of benefit to use innoculant to stimulate them, individually pot them indoors under grow lights and gently transplant to an outside bed in spring? What makes sense?
Daikon (also Japanese radish, Lo Bok) 06 Aug, Dave (USA - Zone 6a climate)
Hi I live in Pitts pa and getting ready to plant some Japanese minowase seeds I was wonder when is the best time to plant them
Garlic 06 Aug, R Hulse (USA - Zone 7b climate)
There are several types of garlic, but the main two are hardneck and softneck. Hardneck is for colder climates and softneck is for warmer climates. Not sure about elephant garlic or any of the others but you can search the internet to find out what zones they grow best in.
Cape Gooseberry (also Golden Berry, Inca Berry ) 05 Aug, Marijke Warners (Canada - Zone 6b Temperate Warm Summer climate)
Some of the flowers have turned into green spiky husks, then turned a dark brown/black. Is this normal?
Tomatillo 04 Aug, Hugh (USA - Zone 5a climate)
These grow fantastically in Western MA. Great yield. Several self-seeded plants around the property are doing ok. Amazing considering how dry it's been this summer.
Cucumber 03 Aug, (USA - Zone 9b climate)
