Thank you! From those pics I already recognise 2 or3 deseases and a Copper deficiency. But it's normal I suppose. Is good that 80 % of all leafs looks perfectly fine for now.These diagnostic tools may be helpful to you. You have the advantage of seeing your plants in real life and from different angles and lighting.
Hi all, I purchased a pipe and some accesories from the danish store. Will show you when it arrives. @deluxestogie ,@Knucklehead , @BrotherJ .
I am concened for the plants as it is geting cold here. Nights are 3-4-5 degrees C or 37-41F. Few out of next 10 nights will be only 1C . I checked the map for the first frost date and for mine area is 20th of November but my town is at the border with the area where the frost is from now 20th September. Also 1C is already there almost.
The plants are not ripening yet, even Virginias which I expected to be ready by now. They sit the same as 2 weeks ago.
Thanks for the helpful read! From what I understood few hours at 0-1C won't do much harm.
they pretty much refused to yellow up at all until harvested; I just had to go by feel.
It sounds like those leaves weren't able to breathe enough and suffered "house burn" (i.e. on their way to becoming compost.) The aim of curing leaf in piles/boxes/bags is to prevent them drying too fast; not to completely prevent moisture escaping. Shuffling the leaves more often and occasionally airing them out [edit: whenever they feel sweaty] may help but I think the nylon bag would still be a bit of a problem, or at least create more work than it's worth. I don't have much experience with pile-curing but have had better results with the leaves piled (heaped rather than stacked) in the open or, at most, loosely covered with packing paper. It's generally quite a damp place here in England though, so take that with a pinch of salt.I have put some greens in a nylon bag and they do cure, but are becoming very clumpy like a wet rag [...]
