Quick Update of my garden.

This week I’ve been fighting 3 types of fungus- downy mildew, powdery mildew, and tomato leaf spot—septoria. I went to my local nursery and got myself a bottle of copper fungicide.- My new best friend. 🙂 I cut all the leaves that were infected with the fungus and I threw leaves in the trash instead of my compost. I don’t want that stuff spreading.

It took about 3 hours to sprayed on every single plant- to prevent it and to stop spreading-  So far its been 3 days  and I have noticed a great improvement on my plants. It seems that the mildew and septoria has slow down, but I have to reapply again because it has rained.

I going to take more pictures this week of my awesome background garden and keep ya’ update 🙂

Hi everyone name is Cecilia and, I'm 25 years old. I'm passionate about plants and gardening. At the age of 16, I was bitten by the gardening bugs, thanks to my grandma and my sweet, lovable mama. I plan to share my hopes, dreams, fears, and daily happenings in my life. When the days are beautiful. I enjoy going on road trips and especially go on hikes. I'm just recently graduate from college, and I was able to get my degree in Horticulture- Small Market Farming. Now I'm working on getting my IT innovation Degree at UNOmaha. My dream is to one day possess my own land out in the country, but near the city. Where I can be surrounded by peace and filled with inspiration with a little mix of technology. If you have any questions, feel free to email me :))
