I really suck at choosing the right time.

Out of all this lot (maybe 30 cobs) we left about 15 too long and another 5 or so picked too early. Early is ok cause they still taste great but undersized but too old and they are ruined. I waited for the brown tufty flufty but it seemed too early for some.. they all grew at defferent rates so it wasnt easy. It pays to have a good feel of them and see if they have developed well but I still struggled.

So the corns all gone and our crappy corner garden has been replenished with cuc's and zucc's. Theres also some rockmelon and watermelon in there but not doing real well. Wicking bed so far is less than exciting but stuff is growing non the less.

I think they like the long grass. They have a little house but never seem to use and when there is no long seed grass growing in the cage they lay eggs all over the place but they dont sit on them and nothing comes of it. When the seed grass grows tall and thick they make a little nest in the middle of it and thats when they sit on the eggs for a couple of weeks straight. Even when it was pouring rain on top of her, she didnt move off this lot.

So the zucc's are out. In the process of replenishing the soil. Anyone got any good tips to get the soil ready? Should I test the soil for PH? And what would be a good number?

I will re-dress with compost but what else is a good thang?

Got some beans, kale, cauliflower, brocc's etc ready to go in.
