Question of the Week – Magnesium Deficiency

Posted by romeethredge on August 8, 2013

The answer to last week’s question is Magnesium deficiency. Muscadine grapes don’t need a tremendous amount of this nutrient but they do need some every year and so I recommend some Epsom salts, Magnesium sulfate, around every plant every year. Keeping your plants limed with dolomitic limestone helps as well.


Here’s the question of the week. What types of birds are these that I photographed here in Seminole County a couple of weeks ago at the edge of a pasture?

    A woodstork and a juvenile roseate spoonbill. I saw spoonbills for the first time in this area last year near Jakin. I saw them on two occasions in the same pond (the old Green Valley golf course). I used to see them all the time in southwest Florida near Naples and Ft. Myers. I had no idea they ranged this far north and inland.
