Lorraine it is nasty pesticides as they killed a couple of our cows over the years. To add more misery as I was driving to Tri-cities yesterday there is a horrible haze all over that area too from wild fires. Which I didn't even think about since I don't watch regular tv any more. My box thing froze up and I really didn't care, I just watch DVDs that I pick up cheap at thrift stores, grocery stores and yard sales.

I've only seen one or two bumble bees around here so far, it is loving the one big lavender plant out back. Plenty of wasps, flies, spiders, those ugly big bugs that I think are those ground livers that only come out every 7 years, UGLY things. Thought they were June bugs but after chatting w/a fellow last night convinced they are the other guys. Have dang crickets & grasshoppers too.

Remember it is full moon do your transplanting and under ground growers now.

   Lorraine, I have a neighbor with chickens.  How do you make the manure tea?  I also have a pic of an in flight, not so common, honey bee (Apis mellifera).  It is laden with pollen sacs while collecting on my Trucker's corn.

Vicky, I feel your pain on each post. That soil is going to take awhile to build up again. I hope you can find out what they are spraying and that it's not poisonous! The soil here has been worked since the 80's but the base is sand. Lots of horse manure with shavings has been added but it still could use more. When it dries out, any amount of watering seems to evaporate without mulch on top. Carrots & beets seem to be my toughest crops to grow well throughout the space. My chickens are a godsend for 5 gallon buckets of manure "tea" that works better all season than any miracle grow.

"Michelle, I think these would be annuals here, but I have never grown them. Last winter, I looked everywhere online for where to buy the seeds, but I couldn't find them. Did you grow these from seed or buy them as plants?"
