That's not dust that is pesticides that they sprayed on the hops all night!

We are lucky we have blue skys, if we were in the city it would be a haze all the time.

Vicky too bad about the dust haze, at least its not smoke from wild fires. However the washing might get dirty again. You can,t expect too much from your first season where you are, next year will be better. Sounds like a wild life park at your place.

Lorraine, whats the cardboard for, I,m guessing to hold moisture in the ground or to stop fungus on the leaves.

Just wanted to show you this ugly brown haze all around me. I am surrounded by hop fields and tractors were running all night last night spraying. GRRRRRRR!

Lorraine I'm envious I wish my garden was that far along. My ground is hard as a rock here. My poor zuc has only 3-4 small leaves. I gave it some organic fertilizer in a gal water can on Mon along with the tomato. I also wish I had more than a small composter full of compost to till into the ground as I go, so haven't done it since where I am now is pretty much the herb garden. When I get the veg garden ready for later I will add cow poo that has been laying around for many years and what ever else I can find to till in. I forgot to grab the bale of peat when I was at ACE yesterday.

Same squash 5 days later from same side, a step back with row of cabbage in front.

I have full blast sun now for a week on my squash & no wilting of the leaves going on. They are growing through the holes in the landscape fabric right on top of the old raspberries (full of weeds) that we cut down in the fall. I added pulled weeds on top of it instead of removing it like last year and then having a shortage of mulch, I put cardboard boxes in between the young plants. I am not watering as much as last year and the plants are going fantastic. I water with a sprinkler overhead but they seem to be happy campers about it. I wondered if I should cut the boxes into small pieces but didn't have the energy! First photo taken July 5 and then today. They are nearly buried under the squash now. . .

"? Can I cut my beet greens and use them and have the roots still grow? They look so good right now, not like the ones at the last house that were all full of leaf miners. Is spinach a cut and come again?"
