Sorrel and tomato
Zuc, cuc, & beans coming along slow but sure.
We have crickets that chirp at night here. Crickets eat your food too but they are long, actually we have a baby version around here too barley an inch long or smaller. Maybe it is baby season.He said it is a beetle which I thought my weevil was til I found out other wise.
Yes, Fats cut Asparagus off at ground level , let them grow up again and then cut again, the same as if you where harvesting to eat. It takes a few years for the shoots to thicken and be juicy in stead of thin and vine like. Good luck. Not sure about what bugs you have in the US. In late summer, Autumn in Aus we have a stinking black cricket about 6cm long, that seems to come up out of the dry cracks of the ground. They swarm around street lights at night and then try to hide in the dark during the day. They die off after we get good late Autumn rain. With the nights still really warm and windows open they keep you awake with their chirping.
Fats are you sure you have beetles or are they root weevils? Nasty little hard shelled black or brown bugs that eat everything in sight.They come out at night to feed. If so squish squish squish. I had them at the last house killed like 200 of them in a 10ft area.
My asparagus stays green, if you don,t keep it trimmed. It turns into asparagus fern if left to grow, they are very hardy. Maybe not enough water when it was first planted and then the summers heats has hit and its found it too hot and dry. While the spikes are thin, keep them cut regular, to make thicker stems. Or it could have been over watered before the bare roots have regrown and caused root rot.
Keryn enjoy the beet greens they are good for your bones, big beets get woody any way. Smaller ones are sweeter too. You can grow them in containers too til your soil gets just right.
I think it's best to sound the town out about what's going on? If they are poisoning bees, that's serious. Anyway, I have found that comparing notes is key to having more information & good things come of that. Our homeowner's association was harassing everyone but no one talked about it until we signed up for yahoo groups & discovered their games. We voted them out & also saved thousands of $$ on lawyer fees, not to mention a much better atmosphere living here. There was a PTA meeting years ago that discovered the school board was going to divide up kids two grade levels per school. Can you imagine parents with several kids jumping around like bunnies from one to the other? It's amazing what a small group of people can do when something isn't right!
