Yes, I'm holding out on putting up a support system until I see they need it. With the RKN problem still a possibility, I don't want to put in the extra work until the last minute.

Salt, I came upon this webpage when I was reading around the fishy thread last night. Thought of you and hung onto it until I found your thread.
It is about as much info on RKN as you can imagine.
Interesting that the first thing they talked about is what B54red said, manure!
Will be interested to see how everything does this year...hope your efforts all worked out.

All we did to combat the RKN did not work in at least part of the garden. The first pictures are of tomato plants in a raised bed and a less or not infected area in the main garden. The last pictures are in the worst infected area of the main garden. All of the cages are the same height. All the plants were planted between March 16 - 20th.

We have given some thought of raising a couple pigs in the main garden or something like that next year. It is already fenced in and only a few changes would need to be made. I've never raised a pig. I haven't researched it at all.

The smell might make you think outer wise on the hogs.

Think about raising a steer instead.
I have to warn you it will become a pet.
Another option is meat rabbits.
They are easy to butcher on your own.
The former you will have to pay someone to do it.
No way can I see you guys building a fire and scalding and scraping the bristles off a hog in hot water.
It is a work house big time even for people that know how to do it.

I started weeding in an area that looks RKN infected. These are the first two weeds pulled up - absolutely RKN in the roots.
