Rhubarb 24 Jun, Nicala (USA - Zone 7a climate)
Hi, I am in zone 7a and I planted a rhubarb crown here in April and it doesn't look well. I think it was getting too much sun. I dug up the crown and put in a pot of compost. It is the middle of summer here and wondering if it will be okay in the pot until fall when I can plant it somewhere that gets less sun? Should I put the pot in a cool dark place?

Tomato 07 Jun, Nick Thegardner (USA - Zone 10b climate)
We have planted two different tomato transplants in our raised bed. Bed is about 18" deep. Have good soil, topped with compost, then covered with straw. How often should we be watering this time of year? Current daily temps are around 70-75.
Tomato 10 Jun, (USA - Zone 9b climate)
If it is hot a good watering 3 times a week - not so hot 2 times a week. Small plants need small waterings more often. The finger test is a good indicator also.
Tomato 09 Jun, dan (USA - Zone 10a climate)
nick, I've read just to stick your finger in about 2 in. and if it's dry, then water. There's also fertilizing to consider. Homestead and Chill is a great website that has articles on Tomato's (deep watering/ shade cloth) and alot more. dan
Tomato 05 Jun, Melissa (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I started my seeds back in January and transplanted them out mid-march like the diagram said. However, it does show you can plant them in April, but I would be careful because just as they are starting to take off the heat and humidity will be setting in. Depending on the variety most plants will not produce fruit when temperatures are consistently about 90 degrees. Which we are almost there in our zone. Adding shade over them can help! Otherwise, I use the tapping method to aid with pollination :).
Onion 02 Jun, Karen Ventura (USA - Zone 8a climate)
