Garlic 23 Sep, Sonya (USA - Zone 5b climate)
I would like to choose 2 types of softneck garlic. Any suggestions on which two to choose? I also heard about elephant garlic. If it will grow in 5B... I may just grow that type. ?????? Undecided!

I thought my watermelons had died off but in the beginning of this month (September) they decided to start growing again any chance they will actually survive or am I wasting my time?

Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 01 Sep, Elaine (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I tried growing zucchini in raised beds this summer. Followed all the instructions here. They produced 2 or 3 fruit per plant then started dying. Yellow leaves, soggy stems. Maybe I over watered? I gave each plant about a litre of water per week. It’s also been very hot (90F+ constantly from the beginning of June) When you say plenty of water, how much is plenty?
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 03 Sep, BaltimoreHopeDealer (USA - Zone 7b climate)
The most likely culprit was squash vine borers. They bore into the base of the stem and eat the plant from the inside. You will notice that the leaves aren't getting nutrion and will turn yellow/brown. Production will slow down and the roots will start to get squishy and gross. Finally, the plant will fall over and die.
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 17 Sep, Michele (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I had a really bad issue with aphids this year. Killed all my zucchini and cucumbers. Can we plant in September in Zone 9b?
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 19 Sep, (USA - Zone 9b climate)

Thank you!
Zucchini (also Courgette/Marrow, Summer squash) 02 Sep, Naomi (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Hi Elaine, I had a similar problem this year with my zucchini. The plant never grew much, and didn’t produce any fruit. The temperature was very high 105s for the peak growing time in my area. I am have my fingers crossed we will get a few squash before it gets cold. I am going to try and plant mine early next year and hope they get started producing before the heat sets in. Post if you find an info about plants not producing. Cheers. Naomi
Strawberry Plants 30 Aug, Laura Geisel (USA - Zone 10b climate)
I have ever earring plants, which are new this year. How do I care for them in the fall/winter? And when will they start producing again next year? Thx
Artichokes (Globe) 29 Aug, Bonnie (USA - Zone 7b climate)
What does it mean to plant under cover? Inside, or under a roof, or under one of those plastic covers like a mini-greenhouse? Thank you!
Artichokes (Globe) 06 Sep, Anonymous (USA - Zone 4a climate)
Out of the sunlight. Google about it.
Rhubarb 29 Aug, Becky (USA - Zone 3b climate)
(i live in southwest MN in the summer and winter in Arkansas. )It’s September and I just bought some rhubarb to plant in zone 3b-4. Can I plant now in September and leave them do I need to stay and water them continually or should I take them back down south with me and take care of them and plant in the spring back in zone 3b-4. Thank you for your help.
