Many producers welcomed rain this past week, but some areas got too much and that can harm your garden.
Rick Van Duyvendyk, owner of Dutch Growers, said breaking up the soil allows air in which helps the rain pack down into the soil.
“The biggest thing you can do is take your fork or take your (garden) hoe and loosen up the soil a little bit,” said Van Duyvendyk.
Powdery mildew is another problem caused by too much moisture. He said it looks like specks of white mould on the leaves of cucumbers, squash and tomatoes.
“You can use a product called garden sulfur. It’s a very eco-friendly product to use and it clears it right up,” he said.
Van Duyvendyk is also the host of Garden Talk on CJME. Tune in on Sundays at 9 a.m.
