Icicle seed pods do look like beans.

Latest pics, my new pots, my one lone tomato that ripened so far, and my baby cucumbers I finally discovered today.

I got my 5 pots planted late last night with beets, lettuces, spinach, kale, carrots, bunching onions and stuck a rosemary in the middle of the carrot one just for the heck of it since they are good companions. Got 3 more zuc yesterday and 4 bush beans today. Jasmine was chewing on something and I asked her where she got it. Said from the ground she was eating an icicle radish seed  pod, she thought it was a bean. I plant them in the zuc and let them go to seed like they say to do. It looks like a bean, oooops.

Think I may be making that trip to Lowe's! I am usually upgrading pots all the time and use at least 30. The Plant Farm added a recycled pots feature so every time I go in there I have picked up at least one heavy duty tree size black pot to increase my strawberries.

Well was at Lowe's Thurs. and they had some made in the USA huge round planter pots normally $15 marked down to $3 something so I got 5 of them. Since I don't have my ground plowed, goodies added, fence built etc. I will plant them with some fall crops. Maybe later on put blueberry plants in them unless I can get my hands on more wine barrels. If I could afford them I would have bought at least 15 for the blueberries but still trying to get the $ for the property taxes. Sooooo have to get the sale ready. The guys said they may have some more lawn mowing jobs for me. If so that won't be for much longer, I HATE WINTER!

Lorraine I don't have critters just worms in my compost pile but there is a big pile of poo from our cows that has been sitting out there for a lot of years.Probably not enough to go around tho. Bill and I bagged some up for him to take to his garden. I don't see many bees around here either with all the pesticides they use on the hops and orchards around here.My stuff probably gets pollinated from all the wind we get and the ants and flies.

Thanks William. I don't see many honey bees around here anymore. The clover blooms without them and people tend to use alot of roundup or other weed killers on their blackberries and in their corn fields here which has glyphosate. Either they are ignorant of all the studies done or just desperate, I don't know which. . .

Lorraine there are several bees that do the pollinating on my cantaloupes. I have Honey Bees on the property 2 hives right now. I am not sure what the other bee is that works the flowers, it could be wood bees or the bumble bee I can't tell the 2 apart. They do need lots of sun and water.

Comment by Lorraine Smith Pacific NW on August 22, 2014 at 3:12pm

William do you know what bug pollinates your cantaloupe? I have plenty of leaves & flowers but no fruit. They are under roof but open to weather and bugs. Trying to hand pollinate them. . .
