ericeugenius HELP? Anyone know what this is? Morning glory and bean plant both suffering from this. Flowers and fruits are fine, only leaves are being affected. 5d
  •   ericeugenius Thanks for the response @warrensgarden no spider mites in sight! 5d
  •   warrensgarden It could be a virus if there are no mites 5d
  •   ericeugenius I was thinking something along those lines too.. @warrensgarden 5d
  •   thehumblegardener A virus should show up in any new leaves emerging, if red spider new leaves should be fresh and normal looking. 5d
  •   wildman_bill My roommate had beans in the greenhouse. They were looking like that. I assumed it was too hot and took them out. They seem to be doing better. My other guess is maybe it's from water on the leaves in the sun. Burning the leaves when it evaporates. 5d
  •   ericeugenius Thank you! @thehumblegardener I really appreciate getting feedback from experienced gardeners 13h
  •   ericeugenius @wildman_bill overheating is what I suspected, the water droplets amplifying the sun is an interesting thought that hadn't occurred to me! Thanks for responding 13h

ericeugenius Fresh from the garden!! ..and in DESPERATE need of simple, delicious recipes. I have zucchini, a bunch of cucumbers and several spaghetti squash. Help me out if you have any good recipes! *especially need help with the spaghetti squash* 2w
  •   sbgibbons With the spaghetti squash.. Stab it a few times, put in oven at 400° for 1 hour, then cut open, get out seeds (you can roast those too! Yum!) and squash, dash with sea salt and black pepper! Yum! 2w
  •   hollyshawhunter Zucchini "lasagna" use a mandolin slicer to get long skinny squash noodles and make lasagna. With spaghetti squash I just make spaghetti! I could eat piles of it. 2w
  •   jeanniebrandt Yummy! 2w
  •   ericeugenius @chenderhan that sounds simple and tasty! I'll give that a try. Thanks! 1w
  •   ericeugenius @hucklejerrylinn I'm looking at the recipe now and my mouth is watering! Absolutely trying that sometime. I'll need to make a trip to the store first! However I have plenty of zucchini :D thanks! 1w
  •   ericeugenius Sounds easy enough! Thanks (: @sbgibbons 1w
  •   ericeugenius Ah @hollyshawhunter i had something like that before and it was fantastic. I prefer it over pasta and it's cool how you can eat it in the same manner. I'll have to see if I have a mandolin slicer buried in the depths of my cabinet. Thanks for the idea! 1w
  •   hollyshawhunter So yummy!! And feels better in your belly than pasta 1w

ericeugenius I've been transplanting trees that I come across in the blueberry fields, since they will not be permitted to grow anyway. This is a tulip tree, the largest growing hardwood east of the Mississippi. I'm in love with the foliage, such unique leaves🌳 2w
  •   itsjess619 Oops :) my favorite tree!!!! Looks like a cat when the lobes aren't so deep lol. Cat ears and whiskers 2w
  •   ericeugenius It's become one of my favourites as well :) I love how they tend to grow really tall and straight without many lower branches. They look like massive living columns with a canopy of cat ear foliage above ;) 2w
  •   itsjess619 ️ love them!!! Such a beautiful description 2w

ericeugenius Wild raspberries 2w
  •   ericeugenius or some type of berry.. Anyway, I'm still alive and they were delicious :D 2w
  •   opalnoir They look like they could also be unripe blackberries, but they would be pretty bitter if so. 2w
  •   ericeugenius @opalnoir I thought that might be the case but they were very sweet and deep red. They are more glossy than most raspberries I've encountered. 2w

ericeugenius If you have limited space but want plants place your green friends in a can and set them on the windowsill (: ⠀⠀⠀ !! The top comes off easily with a crank can opener from the kitchen cabinet. alliterate.
Drainage holes are optional.
Most of my plants do not have drainage so they set on the windowsill without making a spill:D ️also fun recycling 🌍

ericeugenius You know how there are different varieties of apples? I'm sure we can all name a few off the tops of our heads: gala, figi, red delicious & pink lady are a few that come to mind.
Blueberries also come in several popular varieties. You should be able to tell that some of these berries are white inside while others are greenish. They are two different varieties. Duke (white) and Bluecrop (green) and show an obvious difference in flavour. Dukes begin to produce ripe fruit in mid June and tend to be sweet, creamy, and rather flavourless.
Bluecrop are harvested end of June and are a bit more tart, however, still sweet and carry a fuller flavour than Dukes.
So ya you probably don't care, but i thought it was neat. Been eating a pint a day for the past two weeks so I've had time to figure this out 😛
You won't see them labeled as 'Duke' or 'Bluecrop' so you'll have to use this knowledge to figure out what you got

  •   kyra_hutt I love this picture and the info, I never knew all that stuff! 4w
  •   dansiva I hardly noticed the flesh... That's because I always eat the whole fruit, never bite or cut blueberries xD 4w
  •   ericeugenius Me too! Never had looked at the insides until I got this job. I have to check the plants for bugs so when I come across a berry that looks like it might be infested I have a look inside. @dansiva I noticed the difference in colour then. And now I'm in the habit of biting each in half (to determine variety and look for bugs ) 4w
  •   ericeugenius Yeah I never knew before either! Come over sometime for a blind taste test @kyra_hutt 4w
  •   dansiva I might have to check mine... I have 3 cultivars on the balcony. They, however, never produce enough berries... 4w
  •   ericeugenius I wonder what yours are! I only know that these two are very popular here in New Jersey. I'm sure different regions have different kinds. And there are tons of other random ones out there to buy! @dansiva 4w
  •   brendachance We have a U-pick blueberry farm within 20 miles. Now I know to look for different varieties for different flavours, not just different ripening times. Thanks for sharing that. :-) 4w
  •   jabelico This is so great...thx for the fun facts!!! 3w
