SWEETMEAT SQUASH

TONIGHT , 10-22-15 , FREEZING WEATHER IS PREDICTED.
I AM RAISING MY FIRST PATCH OF SWEET MEAT SQUASH
IN "GROW BOXES" ON CONCRETE. THE BOTTOM PART OF THE
CONTAINER IS FILLED WITH 4 GALLONS OF WATER. THE VINES
TRAIL OUT OF THE BOX ONTO CONCRETE WHERE THE SQUASH
ARE GROWING LARGER EVERYDAY. I AM WORRIED THAT THIS
FREEZE WHICH IS PREDICTED TO GET 30 DEGREES WILL KILL
MY PLANTS OF SWEET MEAT SQUASH? THE SQUASH ARE TOO
YOUNG TO HARVEST. I CAN TAKE THE BOXES
APART AND CARRY IT ALL INTO THE HOUSE IF NEED BE, BUT
WOULD LIKE TO AVOID THAT IF IT IS UNNECESSARY.
PLEASE ADVISE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, NANCY

Stinky Bug

I've been having problems with little beetles getting into my place. The are about 1/8 in. wide by 3/4 in long and when they feel threatened (which is very easy to do) they let loose with a very toxic smell that is so strong it travels throughout my place. They are black or dark gray and seem so small and delicate that I usually don't see them until it's too late. They seem to like to hang out in my kitchen sink. Any ideas on what they are?

Tomato vine & leaf issues?

For 8 years I've been growing beautiful tomato plants that produce wonderfully. I rotate where I grow them every few years and amend my soil yearly. I give the plants food once a month. This year I have tons of tomatoes but the plants are drying up at the bottoms and middle. The tops are perfect and the vines are thick but the bottoms and lower middle are dried up. This year the plants, determinent, indeterminent and heirlooms are getting irrigated every 2-3 days depending on weather. However, this year the plants are also getting wet from the sprinkler not drenched but wet. There is no avoiding it. If it's the sprinkler water causing the problem, why aren't the tops burned up too? If I were watering too much, the toms would be split. So what is the problem? Under watering, nutrition or a pest? If nutrition..why are the toms so healthy looking? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Pig Hoop House Groundwater Management

Hi, my name is Niki Harris and I am with California Heritage Farms in Siskiyou County. We have a pastured hog operation and are moving into an open aired hoop house system, directly on the ground (no concrete slabs), where we will house about 650 pigs in four different hoops (max carrying capacity at any given time) with access to outdoors. We will do this on two different properties that are about 3 miles apart from one another. We will use deep straw bedding and compost the manure.

Given that we are within a mile from a river I would like to write a detailed groundwater management plan to ensure that our operation will not be disturbing river habitat beyond an acceptable measure for California compliance. I have spoken with our river trust Executive Director and NCRS representative and they are supportive of the project.

I am wondering if you have any example groundwater management sample plans that you could share? Or parallel plans. Thank you!
