Potatoes

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 20:33

The potato flowers have turned into potato fruit. These are poisonous and best removed and disposed of. They look like tomatoes but are not.

Could be flea beetles. Again, micromesh will keep them out.

These will blow up to A4, and I doubt I'll need anything bigger than that.

Yes, some of the Sony ones don't have the carl zeiss lens , or they didn't. I've always liked Sony videos,  and the marine housings are good, so we went with that. OH has a big Canon SLR and ridiculously expensive lenses, but its just too much hassle to carry around all the time.  I just bang everything on automatic, point and press. It has a macro button for close ups, and telephoto/wide angle, and with a whale shark, you need the wide angle!! Its pretty old now, bought in 2008 I think. I would buy another like it though, I think the megapixels have gone up a lot since.

It's a compact Sony cybershot.12megapixels. We bought it with a marine housing for chasing whalesharks, about 5 years ago. It's a good size for shoving in a pocket or handbag..

Are you in Minnesota? Buddyboy?

It's just that most of the forum are in UK, and the growing conditions, diseases, and remedies are somewhat different.

In a year it would be about 3feet.

Subsequent years,assuming hard pruning in spring, about 6to9 feet.

Without pruning about 15 ft after 4 years.
