Finally, the zucchini are starting to grow more than four-inches long. The plants look good, but I decided to give one plant a shot of Miracle Gro to see if it made a difference. Yep, it did as we just picked a 10-inch zucchini. I am thinking our soil just doesn’t have the oomph it used to and some plants need another shot of fertilizer about the time they are putting on fruit.

I decided to pull the rest of the onions as the tops were falling over and it is one less batch of plants to keep irrigated. The lemon cucumbers are really pumping out and I found enough pickling cucumbers to made two quarts of dill pickles. Luckily, the dill plants were starting to put on heads and I used the new garlic that has been drying.

The second crop of corn really took off. It also got a shot of Miracle Gro. I harvested mint and it is drying in big paper bags. The basil was starting to bloom, so I harvested it as well.

Aphids have attacked the broccoli and one red cabbage. Ugh! The broccoli is weird this year and is trying to make big heads, but they are not maturing evenly. I made a spray of one/sixth vinegar, a squirt of Ivory dish soap and two cups of water and sprayed the aphids. I hope it does the trick. Aphids are yucky!

The sunflowers are over six feet tall and have just started making heads. We should have our second ripe tomato this week. Sure hope this week’s hot temps bring on more red ones. “Ugh” on the heat that is expected this week!

Siskiyou County Supervisors Lisa Nixon, Dist. 4, and Brandon Criss, Dist. 1, attended the Siskiyou Co. Republican Central Committee meeting this month. They were asked to speak about serving on the cannabis ad-hoc committee. I need to correct my statement from last week, the county supervisors voted 5-0 to ban commercial grows in Siskiyou Co. I had claimed it was 4-1, which was wrong.

Lisa said their job, as a committee, was to present all options and the two supervisors were asked to facilitate the meetings. Commercial and medicinal growers served on the committee as well as those who were against any growing.

Both supervisors said they have taken a lot of heat from all sides, including the public-at-large. Brandon clarified that he and other farmers in Butte Valley like raising strawberry plants and that their area is “golden” when it comes to growing the healthiest plants, which are sent all over the world. He did not appreciate the gossip that claimed he was changing from strawberries to grow pot. That is a lie. It was quite an informative discussion.

Now, the Yreka City Council is holding a meeting this Thursday night about their cannabis ordinance – if commercial growing should be banned in the city and if dispensaries should also be banned. That meeting will be held at the Yreka Community Theater at 6:30 p.m. Concerned voters should show up and ask questions. Voice your opinion.

Fire Tax

The Howard Jarvis Tax Association recently announced its huge disappointment in the political “deal” that was struck to extend California’s “cap and trade” law. The state legislature passed AB 398, which will increase our gas taxes in California. The trade-off is that the State Responsibility SRA fire (tax) fee will be suspended. This is the fire tax many of us in rural areas have been paying to Cal-Fire and was touted to be a prevention fee, but we learned that the funds went into Cal-Fire’s general fund.

So, the good news is that the annual fee/tax is going away and Howard Jarvis is continuing its lawsuit against the state and actually hoping for a decision by the end of the year. This would return the monies paid by rural folks, who sent in a protest/redetermination petition. Sure would be nice to get those funds back, but I am not holding my breath.

The bad news is that our gas prices will be increased up to 71 cents per gallon. Don’t know how fast that will happen, but now the state is “taxing” everyone on their so-called carbon footprint.

POW

Dist. 5 Siskiyou Co. Supervisor Ray Haupt said the state approved the county to serve as the manager for the Groundwater Sustainability Act. This is good news, because the county can be flexible in dealing with the groundwater basins and their individual issues compared to the state, which typically does one-size-fits-all approach and regulations.

Ray also attended the Scott River Groundwater Advisory Committee meeting on July 24, 2017. Thomas Harter, Ph.D. was in attendance. He has directed the groundwater study on the Scott River and found scientific facts that disprove Greenie myths. Last year, CA. Dept. of Fish and Wildlife funded a project that flooded east side fields in early spring with a finding that indeed early flooding does significantly increase flow in the Scott River in the summer.

Unfortunately, this year the DFW did not approve the funding to continue the study.

Felice Pace, a long-time agriculture-antagonist sent a letter to DFW complaining that the study helps farmers. Unfortunately, DFW officials sided with Felice and pulled the funding — using six of the eight bullet-points Felice cited. Well, isn’t that just great. A project that is showing an agriculture practice actually benefits the fish. And the Greenie and state agency shut it down!

Dr. Harter believes the study needs to continue. The committee will be reapplying for funding, so the program can be reinstated next year for 4,000 acres. Now that the county is the GSA manager, it will likely weigh-in as well. Sure do hope DFW sees the light and approves the funding.
