Rained Out!

If you are in the Wichita area, you probably already guessed that we are rained out of the Demonstration Garden today!

Soggy GardenOne thing you’ll notice from looking at this picture (or looking at the plants in general in the garden), is that there are a lot of plants showing pale green to yellow leaves. Nothing is that dark lush green color! We seem to be getting to the point where the available nitrogen from the soil is gone. All this rain is only going to make the problem worse by flushing any remaining nitrogen through!

So, if you have any plants that you are hoping to keep until we get our first frost, you should look them over and perhaps give them some additional fertilizer.
