Tuesday, County Commission
Chairman Doug Birmingham
abruptly cancelled a joint meet-
ing between county, Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka governments
scheduled for 5:00 p.m., and an-
nounced he was supporting re-
duction of their tentative road
money portion considerably.
The Chairman made a sort of
tale-it-or-leave-it -.:- r- offer of-
$600,000 to the City of Port St.
Joe and $400,000 to the City of
A previous tentative agree-
ment reached by the three boards
had settled on $900,000 for Port
St Joe and $600,000 for Wewa-
hitchka, from a proposed $3 mil-
lion bond issue. The issue would
be paid for by the six cent motor
fuels tax over the. next 20 years.
Thursday night, the two com-
munities were to give their reac-
tions to the Commission, but
only the City of Port St. Joe was
present, voicing strenuous. objec-
Port St. Joe's Commissioner,
James B. Roberts, left no ques-
tion concerning the city's feelings
about the matter. '"We reject the
proposal," Roberts said. The
Commissioner said the City had
29.7 miles of street to maintain,
"and 13.125 miles of these
streets need resurfacing right
now. $600,000 won't get the job
Roberts then went on to point
out the two cit s had urged the
county to levy the gasoline tax
two years ago, pointing out, "By
dragging feet for two years, you've
already missed enough revenue
to resurface C-30, your biggest
.^ project to be placed in the bond
Roberts said the city has no
source. of revenue to pave streets.
'We've had $50,000 in road mon-
ey from the county in the last 10
years. We're in bad shape."
The Commissioner pointed
out, 'You didn't have any real op-
position to the gas tax, but if the
people who are going to pay the
bills don't get their roads they
were promised, you're going to
have some real problems." Rob-
erts pointed out that the lion's
share of the revenue would come
from Port St. Joe anrd Wewahitch-
Commissioner Bill Fleming
added to Roberts' presentation,
that, "We're not proposing any
new street paving. We're just
talking about maintaining what
we already have."
Roberts, who emphasWJeqe_.
was just delivering the message,
his board asked him to deliver,
pointed out three agreements the
city would consider.
'We would consider taking
the $600,000 and 30% of what's
left after the proposed bond pay-
ment is made each year... or .
. the $600,000 and what's left
out of a proposed $1 million to
resurface C-30 or .
$600,000 and $50,000 a year af-
ter 1994 [the year a current
bond issue is paid off, freeing
some $350,000 a year in road
funds now pledged to retire the
previous bond issue].
THINGS GET 'TESTY'
By this time, things started
getting testy in exchanges, princi-
pally between Roberts and
County Commissioner Jimmy
Gortman, who charged, "If we
drop this thing now for lack of
agreement, it will be the fault of
the City of Port St. Joel"
Gortman claimed there had
been no agreement made by the
county. Roberts said there had
been the $900,000-$600,000
agreement and both cities had'
Gortman said the county
board had never voted on the
agreement. Roberts retorted that
since the city had not heard any
objections from the county in
about a month, they assumed the
agreement had the blessings of
Gortman insisted the matter
had never been brought before
the Board, but other members
said it was on their agenda two
meetings ago, and Clerk Lister
showed a copy of the agreement.
Gortman insisted the matter had
never been voted on and the re-
mainder of the board agreed to
Gortman's point was that
there was no existing agreement
to division of the money and Rob-

Asks for More
Tentative Figures Show Tax Decrease
Superintendent of Schools
Walter Wilder said this week the
tentative work on the new School
Board budget indicates there will
be an increase in money received
and spent, but a slight decrease
in millage for the coming fiscal
Wilder said this situation is
possible because of new taxable
property coming on the county
rolls, increased state participa-
tion in funding, providing more
money, but allowing the Board to
actually lower the tax rate by
.241 of a mill.
All figures are tentative at
this point, but the Board has
come up with a budget plan
which calls for $11,710,540 to fi-
nance. Last year's budget figure
at this time amounted to
$10,920.611. The actual budget,
when it was adopted and funded,
came to about $200,000 less.
The tentative budget reflects
an increase of $789,921 over last
year's actual budget.
Wilder said new programs for
the coming school year actually
involves expanding an existing
program. He said there will be
Fireman Rodney Leavins enters a burning home with
breathing apparatus, while Darrell Dawson waits.
Fire damaged the home of the
Darrell Dawson family at 242 Av-
enue G Tuesday afternoon.
The blaze started in a rear
bedroom of the home and was
confined to the burning area by
the Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire
Department. Very little was re-
moved from the home before it
was damaged by the flames or by
water used to fight the fire.
According to Dawson, who
was at work when the fire started
and arrived on the scene a short
while later, there was nobody at
home when the fire started. "I
can't imagine how it started.
Everything in the house is either
burned or wet."
A bumping noise in the house
when the fire-fighting process be-
gan prompted fears there might
be someone trapped inside by the
flames. Quick work by the Fire
Department knocked the blaze
down so the house could be en-
tered, where it was found to be

Annual Assault Begins On County Budget Categories
Annual Assault Begins On County Budget Categories
The Gulf County Commission started ten-
tative work on its new 1989-90 fiscal budget
in a workshop meeting last Thursday evening.
It didn't take the Commission long to ascer-
tain the budget requests for the new year were
going to be substantially more than the bud-
get last year.
Of course, last year's budget doesn't re-
semble the document approved last summer
very much, either. It started off a tight but liv-
able budget, but unexpected expenditures
during the year has shot the plan to sham-
Thursday night, the Board received a pile
of statistics and information from Clerk Benny
Lister and decided to spend the next few days
digesting the 300-plus pages of data. Accord-
ing to Lister's reports and the Commission fig-
uring, the present budget will end up in the
black on September 30, but just barely. Ac-
cording to the figures given by Commission
Chairman Doug Birmingham Thursday night,
the Commission budget will end up with a
balance of just over $200.00 left in the bank.
Requests are already coming in for the
new financial plan and have already topped
last year's actual budget total by some
$1,001,000. Last year, the total budget ran
just over $3 million, while requests already
turned in amount to just over $4 million.
The whole purpose of the month-long bud-
get process, however, is to weed out the pro-
grams which do not have high enough priori-
ties with the Commission to be financed with
the money available. There will be cutting, but
just how much and where, is still to be deter-
WHERE ARE INCREASES?
Just where are the requested increases in
the new budget and why are they higher?
Solid waste disposal comes in for most of
the reputation as the heavy in the matter of
an increasing budget. The county budgeted
$100,000 last year, just to pay expenses of
burning Gulf County's solid waste in the Bay
County incinerator. That item is going to run
in the red in the current budget by more than
$50,000. It's expected to receive more realistic
treatment in the new plan.
Other aspects of waste disposal will also
swell the budget. There's land to be paid for to
place a solid waste compactor in the north
end of the county. There's expense to close the
old Buckhorn Landfill, increased engineering
costs, and a host of other expenditures ex-
pected but not yet revealed in the matter of
solid waste handling.
Add this expense to the fact the county is
still financing this program with ad valorem
taxes rather than user fees. An attempt will be
made to come up with a user fee to give relief
to pressure on taxes, but not just yet.
The Sheriff wants another $90,500 to cov-
er the cost of an additional deputy, mandated
changes to the jail and increased operating ex-
The Commissioners are considering an
item of $86,000 in the new budget to put a
new roof on the courthouse and make other
repairs. There's $8,500 for comprehensive
planning and $25,000 for parks. $52,500 to
fire departments and $41,500 for a new phone
system and an emergency generator installed
in the courthouse. All of these things, plus
mandated increases to constitutional officers,
by the state of Florida, increased insurance
rates, etc., and before you know it, there's

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JULY 20, 1989
How did we get all this mixed up with our motor fuel tax
plan? The program started out as such a sweet deal, with the
county and both cities able to cure some of their road ills with-
out unduly harming anyone. If you didn't operate a motor vehi-
cle, the road work cost you nothing. If you did drive a motor ve-
hicle, you contributed to the road upkeep here in the county
and the cities.
There is no getting by the fact that both the county and the
cities need work done -on their roads. There is also no doubt
that if we get these road repairs and construction, someone
here in Gulf County must pay for them.
We're prepared to do that, but we hadn't counted on this
stubbornness by the Gulf County Commission. We had fore-
seen an amicable solution to the problem with each considering
the needs and problems of the other.
At first the county agreed to a deal which would give the cit-
ies half the anticipated motor fuel tax money and the county
would get the other half. Somehow, or other, we just can't
stand the prosperity of operating reasonably here in Gulf
County and considering the needs of each other.
There is nobody, except apparently the County Commis-
sion, who desires to cause anybody else harm in the deal by de-
manding an unreasonable share of the funds derived from the
proposed tax. Almost everyone will concede, both county and
city government officials, that by far the lion's share of the mo-
tor fuel tax will be collected inside the cities; as much as 80%.
There is also almost unanimous agreement that C-30 is to be
paved out of the proceeds of the new tax. But, when you leave
this agreement, there is none left.
In 1994, the county will have a bond issue paid off and
have some $350,000 a year coming in to do road work with.
Presently, there is a sizeable chunk of change which goes into
the Road and Bridge budget each and every year. The county
has road revenues and they have very current promises of even
more in the near future.
The two cities of the county have no street revenues coming
in. The county uses the revenue sources and only tosses a well-
cleaned bone to the cities every so often.
What we're trying to say is that the county can see revenue
down the road to do its pet projects with. The cities have none.
If the cities do not get at least a reasonable share of this source
from the new six cent tax, they are right back to square one-
no income to do anything with.
Is it fair for the county to demand the cities cut back, while
they get what they want in face of a guaranteed annual income
of $340,000 additional in just four years? If the county does its
job correctly, they have their future assured and should be able
to adjust their needs accordingly.
What Is This?
We're bothered over the news about the new B-2 Stealth
bomber and the attacks being being made on whether or not
the project will continue. -
First, we can't Imagine putting 22.5 BILLION dollars into
developmentbfa-l airplane. For that kind of money we should
be able-to get the Empire State Building to lift off the ground.
That's spending as much money as it takes to operate the en-
tire state of Florida for a year Just to get one airplane built.
Next, we can't fathom anybody's airplane costing a half BIL-
LION dollars per copy to build. Even the space probes don't
cost that much m d they're one-of-a-kind vehicles. It-looks to
us like we're still putting $2,000 toilets in our military air-
Nor can we figure out why there are some Congressmen
now wanting to see the plane scrapped, fold up the plans, tuck
them on a shelf and don't build another one.
They're telling us we have paid this $22 BILLION in taxes to
build this plane and now we're not going to use it? It's no
good? It's ineffective?
What kind of Congressmen do we have, anyway?
If we needed the airplane, most any red-blooded tax payer
will bleed whatever is necessary to pay the $22 BILLION price
tag. He'll even spring for the $500 million per copy, reluctantly.
But, if that airplane is ineffective; if we didn't need it; if we
aren't going to use it, why did Congress spend $22 BILLION of
our money on another boon-doggle?

It may have been that I was
just different, but one of the hap-

became 12 years old so I could
become a part of the Boy Scouts.
They were the ones who were do-
ing things I wanted to get in-
volved in. They were the ones
with the uniforms. They were the
ones who indulged in adventure
in the woods, and camped out,
and stayed overnight under the
stars or in some cabin beside a

WHEN I WAS A boy just
reaching Boy Scout age, momma
kept me from going to the meet-
ing just after my twelfth birthday
because I had done something
which Boy Scouts were taught
not to do. I disobeyed the instruc-
tions of my momma and my pun-
ishment was fitting. It was to
keep me from doing the one thing
I had been looking forward to for
a long time. Of course, I went to
the next meeting, but there had .
been a whole week wasted in not
being a Boy Scout. I didn't know
how I would ever have a full and

-,D. Langston, a Methodist preach-
er of the early '40's, lived here
and took it upon himself to guide,
the Boy Scouts in their activities.
A preacher was Scoutmaster:
back in our little town in Oklaho-
ma, too. He filled up the Sunday
Schools in our little town on Sun-
day, because a boy couldn't be a
member of the Boy Scouts, un-
less he went to Sunday School
regularly. That little town had the
most young boys in Sunday

cause Boy Scouting was some-
thing they wanted to do ... even

much racket as we wanted to be-

of the Scouts. He picked up right

zation boys flocked to and had a
great time with.
John Simpson never took a
vacation that I ever knew of.
When it would come summer
time, he would use his vacation
time to take the Boy Scouts to
the World Jamboree, wherever it
happened to be, or to a week or
two of summer camping up a

Everyone, I think, should be required, as a part of growing up,
to write a column for a newspaper. It's such fun and you get to
meet such interesting people. You also get to read some very unu-
Most of the letters I have received concerning my articles, I'm
happy to report, have been somewhat favorable. Well, some of them
have been favorable. Actually, only one letter I've received had a
positive glimmer to it and the others were downright rude.
It's important to note that writing differs somewhat from the
spoken word. When someone says something and it's wrong and
they later realize it, they have several options; they can deny saying
it, alter what was actually said, or, if they are one of the rare people
I've known, admit saying it, apologize and usually it is promptly for-
When something is written, however, it casts a much different
shadow. It's hard to deny something you've written and signed. One
might attempt to alter the intent of what was written, but the glar-
ing words are there for all the world to read and reread and critique
as they see fit.
For instance, just last week a friend brought a letter by my of-
fice that he had received from his mother. He was somewhat dis-
tressed at the time because he couldn't understand the content. He
was also inebriated, which I brought to his attention, but he stated
that his condition had nothing to do with his inability to read and
understand the letter. After reading it, I agreed with him.
It was a most interesting letter and, with his permission, the
complete letter is printed below. It goes:
I'm writing. this real slow cause I know you can't read fast. We
don't live where we did when you left. Your daddy read in the paper
where most accidents happen within twenty miles of home so he
decided to move away from home, thirty miles or so. It's alright
though, cause this new place where we live has got a washing ma-
chine. The first time I put some socks in it and pushed the start lev-
er, they disappeared and I ain't seen them since.
It only rained too times last week. Three days the first time and
four days the second time. The coat you wanted me to send to you,
your Aunt Sue said it would be a little to heavy to send in the mail
with them big heavy buttons so we cut them off and put them in
the pockets. You ought to get it any day now.
Yestiddy we got a notice from the funeral home, said if we don't
make the final few payments on grandma's funeral bill, up she
comes. Your Uncle John fell in the whiskey vat last week and
drowned. Some men tried to pull him out but he fought them off.
When they cremated him he burned for almost three days.
3 of your friends run off the bridge in a pickup, one was driving,
the other two was in the back. The driver got out, he rolled down
the window and swum to shore. The two in back drowned because
they couldn't get the tailgate down.
Not so much news here. Don't nothing much happen around
here. Will write more later. '
p.s. I was going to send you some money but when I thought
about it I already had this letter sealed up.
Just think, if I didn't write this column and didn't have such
wonderful friends, you and I would probably never have had the
privilege of reading that letter. -
Have, a good day ... .wherever you are!

MORE TAXABLE PROPERTY ON ROLLS
The Commission will have some more
money to maneuver with this year. The annu-
al report by.the Property Appraiser said taxa-
ble properties had increased by some $60 mil-
lion above last year's total.
This increase means that a mill of taxes
will bring in $437,447 this year, as opposed
to $390,115 last year.
Even this increase is not enough to pro-
vide everything everyone wants out of the
budget. According to Clerk Lister's calcula-
He Wants His Beaches Raked
I've just finished reading your
articles (front page and bottom of
second page issue of July 13,
1989) concerning the seaweed
The front page story indicates
that Gulf County is or has been
mounting a campaign to "rake up
the beaches". Obviously this en-
deavor has yet to begin.
I estimate the length of Gulf
County beaches at approximately
30 miles. I can see nearly 6 miles
of It from my window and there
has not been as much as 1 foot of
It that has been raked in the past
year for this or any other reason.
You also state that this "problem"
began in mid-June. Alas, not so.
It began on June 4th.
No doubt you will see this
complaint (as stated on page 2),
as being "unreasonable), especial-
ly if I expect the local government
to attend to this clean-up. I un-
derstood the beaches in Florida
were public property and that the
taxes of the citizens were to be
used, in part, to maintain this
The excuse, as you state it,
appears to be that the seaweed
can't be cleaned up in Gulf
County because it can't be
cleaned up in Bay County. Utterly
absurd. I live in Gulf County. I
don't really give a damn what Bay
County can or can't do with their
I noticed that an elderly wom-
an had taken a small rake and
proceeded to clean up an area 50
feet long in less than 30 minutes.
Can you imagine what she could
do with a tractor and a 12 foot
wide rake? I also noticed at the
entrance to San Blas that a crew
of about 15 men have been clean-
ing out the underbrush. They
have been at it for almost 2
months. I'm sure this little old
lady would have it done with one
third the men and in one half the
I'll end with some simple
math.. .if 1 little old lady (herein-
after referred to as LOL), can
clean 50 feet of beach in 30 min-
utes, then she could clean 32,000
feet of beach in 40 days. This is
assuming an 8 hour day and a 5
day week. Since Gulf County has
around 30 miles of beach, it
would require 5 LOL's to com-
pletely clean the beaches. Now
you may make the retort that the
seaweed has come in more than
once. I admit this BUT. .the
original deposit of June 4th. .IS
STILL ON THE BEACH. I don't

Port St. Joe, FL
[ED NOTE: The Mosquito
Control Department has worked
on clearing the beach of seaweed
since mid-June. Unfortunately,
they have other, more pressing,
things to do too, and cannot de-
vote their entire energies to
sweeping the beach. Your beach
has been raked from Indian Pass
to the Cape. The day your letter
was received, the department was
raking near the Coast Guard Sta-
tion.. If you escape the weed next
year, you may have to vacation in
the mountains, since the entire
Gulf shoreline is victim to the
weed annually about this time.]

tions, it will take some 9.180 mills to finance
all the requests for funds which have been
made of the Board. "And,--this doesn't include
any pay increases the Board may offer,". Lister
Last year's millage rate was 7.685.
Last year's budget had some offices operat-
ing with far less than they considered neces-
sary to properly fund their service, just to al-'
low the Commission some financial leeway to
cope with the unknown quantity of expenses
to be incurred by an ever-changing solid
waste picture. This year's attitude may be dif-

they all came. And what fun. I
told'em I'd be in the big leagues
one day. They all assured me I
could make it.
Mother would call me in for
supper. I'd turn and they'd be
gone. Happened every time. No

The critic's were kind to "Field

"nice fantasy" and it was good "for
all of us to dream". They missed
the whole point. This story was
real, the field was real, the
players were real. They came and
they played. Just like they did
I'd give anything if I could
play one more game with them.
But they don't come around any
more. They haven't in years.

compare thievery and the violent

ridiculous! Where was your head

brains in gear, but you, Mr. Edi-
tor, absolutely take first prize!

Grass Is Growing
Heavy rains over the past few weeks has caused the
grass to grow like mad. One husband threatened to di-
vorce his wife if she spilled any fertilizer on the grass.
'Tt's growing faster, now, than I can cut it," he said.
Emily Simmons, our official unofficial weather person
was on vacation recently, but her son, Bill, gave a report
that said we had more than twice the rainfall over this
time last year, recently. Bill reported we had a total of
eight inches in June and 4.6 as of yesterday morning, in
July. This is a total of 12.6 inches over the past two
months. Last year, during this same time span, we had
6.968 inches. No wonder the grass is growing so much,
keeping city mowers on the job.
A Lot of Bull
There was a whole lot of bull going on last Friday, as
this huge Brahma bull was being shown off in town, ad-
vertising the Saturday rodeo in Wewahitchka. The bull is
being ridden by one of his handlers and was tame as a
shetland pony at his appearance here. When he got in the
rodeo chute, it may have been a different matter.

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. JULY 20. 1989
The Commission had tenta-
tively decided on the perpetual
care designation for the newly
opened section for ease in main-
taining. Under the present policy
of Holly Hill, lot owners allow
graves to grow up with weeds,
leave grass uncut, with some
grave sites deteriorating from
lack of attention.
'The Commission bowed to
the request, deciding to put the
present designation on the ceme-
tery addition, still maintaining
the perpetual care site currently
being developed for that purpose.
SFuneral director, Rocky Com-
forter also requested the City
consider construction of some
kifid of pavilion or shelter of
some kind near the cemetery gate
for the purpose of conducting
SComforter said, "The current
crowded condition of the ceme-
tery makes it- necessary for peo-
ple to stand -around on other
graves to witness graveside rites
and causes a hazard because of
possibility of people tripping and
falling over markers, coping, etc."
Comforter said such a pavil-
ion would also provide shelter to
a, greater number of people dur.
ing inclement weather, during a
Mayor Frank Pate asked
Comforter if the two funeral
homes would consider contribut-
i-to the expense of the struc-
ture and said the Commission
would consider the request "It
sounds like a good idea to me,"
the Mayor said.
"We'll look further into the
matter at our next meeting," Pate
In other business matters,
-Heard a complaint from
Barbara Eells the city had bush-
hogged one of her lots without
notifying her and cut down
plants she was studying. Street
Superintendent Martin Adkison
said the city had cut the lot for
30 years and did so out of habit.
Adklson said Miss Eells would be
notified by letter when the city re-
quired it be cut again.
From Page 1
--The Commission will begin
its tentative budget work Tuesday
of next week, with a morning
workshop meeting. The budget
must be completed by August 5.
-Adkison announced that
most of the equipment for the
Second Street and Highway 98
traffic light had arrived and work
should start very soon on getting
it in place and operating. He also-
said the City collected some
$39,900 from an auction of old
and discontinued equipment re-
Fire Damage at Local
In the. course of shutting
down for scheduled annual main-
tenance, Arizona Chemical expe-
rienced a column fire on the eve-
ning of July 8, according to
company officials. A preliminary
investigation shows that the fire
occurred as a result of breaking
vacuum on the column during
the cool-down process.-
A potentially threatening situ-
ation was avoided by the prompt
action of plant personnel on
duty. Plant personnel extin-
guished the fire just prior to the
arrival of the Port St. Joe Fire De-
partment. The department ap-
plied foam to the area to mini-
mize the chance of combustion
while the column was being se-
There were no injuries but
the Port St. Joe ambulance ser-
vice stood by.
As a result of good work by
all involved, the damage was
minimal. Most of the damage was
superficial in nature and should
be repaired by the end of July.
Gospel Sing At

the First Baptist Church of Mexi-

Commissioner Ed Creamer
then pointed out there were
many streets in st. Joe Beach,
Highland View, Beacon Hill and
White City which needed paving,
although he couldn't say just
how many miles needed atten-
The funding proposal offered
by, Birmingham last Tuesday,
would__allocate $400,000 for
Creamer's District and $400,000
for Birmingham's district.
> After nearly an hour of hag-
gling over where paving was
needed most, the three boards
were no nearer an agreement
than when the meeting first start-
The only point they agreed on
was that C-30 needed resurfacing
ard it would be in the program.
SAs the discussion- wound
down, Commissioner Nathan Pe-
ters put a fourth plan on the. ta-
ble when he suggested Port St.
Joe get $600,000 and $50,000 a,
year for six years. "I favor Port St.
Joe getting the original $900,000,
but I would-settle for this," Peters
: Roberts concurred that the
City would look favorably on Pe-
ters' plan also.

lo! Man, as
Gardeners, Think Fall!
There's Work to be Done Now to Insure
A Successful Garden Later This Year,
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
By now, most of us have just
about finished harvesting and
storing all the ,vegetables from
our spring gardens. Although it's
not yet time to begin making
preparations for fall planting, you
should not completely forget
about your present garden. Even
during this interlude, there are
things to think about and tasks
to perform to insure continued
Maintaining a successful,
productive vegetable garden is a
never-ending enterprise. Even
though you may be experiencing
a lull between spring harvest and
fall planting, there's still work to
be done. In' this article I will talk
about how to take advantage of
this period of performing those
fine-tuning tasks that can make
the difference between a good and
a great garden. My information
was provided by Extension Vege-
table Specialist Jim Stephens, of
the University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
If you still have vegetables in
4) your garden, you should contin-
ue, perhaps even intensify, a reg-
ular pest protection program.
We're into the rainy season now,
which means hot. wet days, and
warm, humid nights, just the
conditions that stimulate insect
and disease pest activity. Tomato
and corn fruit worms and pickle
worms can be very destructive at
this time. Even those pests which
haven't been overwhelming thus
far, often become severe during
the .rainy months. Things like ao-
hads, cabbage worms, squash
borers, and corn bub worms
common problems. So,
should be especially alert
signs of damage, and be prepa
to apply insecticides as needed
In addition, maintain a sh
lookout for the spread of pl
disease. And diseased pla
should be pulled 'out and
posed of as soon as possil
Plants remaining in the gar
should be sprayed weekly witl
Summer is a good time
evaluate the seed varieties you
elected for the spring garden. I
yourself such questions as
the variety produce strong vig
ous plants? What about the qu
ity of the vegetables themselv
How about disease resistant? '
to make a note of the varied
which did well, and those t
didn't, so you'll have some idea
the ones you'll want to include
your fall vegetables garden.
Also, summer offers a good
opportunity to observe the benefi-
cial effect of mulching. If you
mulched your spring garden,
you'll notice that you have very
few weeds, whereas your neigh-
bor's unmulched garden may be
over run with weed growth.. Nem-
atode injury also is much milder
on mulched vegetables, while
nematodes will attach mulched
plants, their effect are not as se-
vere, because of the healthier root
zone in the mulched garden.
The most striking observation
you'll -make' about mulching is
how it controls soil moisture. Veg-
etables grow on unmulched, hot,
sandy Florida soils will droop,
while those grown in mulched
gardening will stand tall. I've seen
are all kinds of material used for
you mulching, including plastic, pine
for straw, hay, oak leaves, and wood
red shavings, even such things as
i. peanut hulls, newspapers, and
ant You may think of other sum-
rts mer chores and new gardening
dis- ideas, meanwhile, don't forget the
ble. care of any plants that are still 'f
den producing. A little extra effort
h a may squeeze some valuable pro-
ductivity from your old plot.
