1/2 cup of crushed egg shells, crushed pretty fine .
1/2 cup of dry powdered milk
1/2 cup of epson salt
1 table spoon of baking soda
mix it up all together
This will make enough for 6 tomato or pepper plants
Spread around base of plants maybe like a 6' diameter
1 time every 2 weeks.
I live in North Western Wi.

I pulled up some youtube videos and found what I was looking for. I pulled out the dirt around the plant, soaked in water in a bucket for a 1/2 hour, pulled some fresh compost and planted in it. I can see new leaves starting to grow so I may have saved the plant.

Took down 4 spaghetti squash and the first butternut. I am going to have to get help eating these for sure. There is at least another ten squash that will be ready in the next few weeks.

Also am pulling about ten Jalapenos every other day.

Ghosts are starting to flower, and Habaneros have a bunch of green fruit currently.

I got my first tomato this week, didn't get them in until mid June but they've taken off pretty good.

Jalapenos are loaded but not quite big enough, I also have a Durango pepper plant that has 3 or 4 small starts and a lot more blossoms, curious to see what these will be like.

Made my first batch of hot sauce last week before I left for vacay.

It was about thirty Jalapenos, ten Habaneros, and 4 Ghost peppers.

Boiled with some ACV, blended, added some salt and sugar to taste. Came out delicious and fucking HOT.

Peppers did not work out this yr, tomatoes have killed it though. I did have some blight problems and decided to use some copper fungicide, tomato plants still look good and producing while most people I have talk to this yr have lost all of there plants.

Planted some beets, radishes, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower for a fall garden.

After I harvest the fall garden I am going to do a over winter soil amendment of a variety of plantings from Johnny seeds. I believe the seed are some type of pea, dicon radishes, hairy vetch, and a couple of others. Want to keep working on improving the soil.

Winding down the summer growing season, processed mega quantities of 5 different types of eggplant. Made a large amount of Persian eggplant stew which I slow roasted for 12 hours along with my garden onions, San Marzano tomatoes, and garlic (plus seasoning). Really tasty but it could be improved with some mild heat. Also made eggplant fries in the air fryer.

Next I made enough pickling brine for 10 gallons of chilis, I mixed pardons with guajillo, pasilla, hatch, aji amarillo, billy biker jalapenos, chipotle jalapenos, plus a couple others. Will let those cure in 1-gallon mason jars for 3 weeks and then randomly fish some out to melt my face.

That sounds lie it would be really good. It's hard to imagine the true flavor of all that stuff together. I love eggplant though, never had it in soup though.
