Last year was a dismal failure in the raised beds. Nematodes came with the tomato starter plants, and wiped out the carrots and eliminated any fruit from the wasted tomato plants.
After a full fall and winter of nothing but dry soil and regular turning to expose all the soil to sunlight, I believe I succeeded it getting rid of them.
My tomatoes this year grew vigorously and started setting fruit by May. Then the heat started and continued without much pause between heat waves. I have still managed to get a pretty decent crop, although I think the continuing 90-+100 temps will pretty much end this years crop production.
I already have pulled 40 to 50 tomatoes which we have been feasting on and freezing to make spaghetti sauce, but today I had to collect a big haul which has all been getting ripe at once.
I thought i would share some pics with you all......
