Happy Mother's Day to all you moms. I have peas today too! Artichokes are ready to harvest. Already ate 4, 5 more ready to go. Spent a week in Mexico and came back to bolted winter lettuce and beets and weeds, weeds, weeds! I finally have small cukes after replanting due to root maggot. My peppers have been in the ground for two months and are still not even 6 inches high. What's up with that? The neighbors are taking down the dead hedge that has been shading my garden; maybe that will help. We ate the first small head of broccoli the other night. No aphids! Lady bugs are working hard. Starting to harvest scallions and spring lettuce. My baby bok choi is not bunching like the ones in the store. They are kind of tall and skinny and rangy. Sure having a problem getting beans to start. Root maggots have gotten a bunch. I tilled in some DE when I replanted. Second batch just up. We'll see.
Of the hundreds of snow peas grown and picked in my garden this year, I can honestly say not ONE made it into the house ... they are just too good to munch on immediately. :) Having the same problem with sweet treat tomatoes now....
Snow peas, stir fry.
Oh Boy Vicky are they sweet peas that you shell or stir fry type ? they sure look good .
blew all my fun money on plants, for like the rest of the year planted 20 tomatoes 3 kinds of cucumber a gooseberry bush 3 types of egg plant more peppers, I was a little disappointed to not find some of my favorite types of tomatoes this year, but say la vie
I have peas
William ... amazon.com here's a LINK . Go to the "18 new for 14.18" I think shipping is free on the first one or two as well. Make sure to get the concentrate to maximise. Follow directions on the box. Have you tried BT? It may be available locally but I think Spinosad is best.
Bob I will do that. Out of sixteen years I have lived here the most squash I have gotten is about 5 or 6 in a year and one yr. I had 6 hills of them. It must be a breeding ground for them on my property. I will see if I can find it at lowes other wise I have to go into the City 60 miles west of me.
William ... check out Spinosad.
Vicky I remember those bloody earwigs when we lived in the Sacramento Area they can and are a pest. We don't have them here in Oklahoma and I don't want any sent to me. I have more problems with squash bugs that any thing. I have tried sitting out there and killing the things and squashing there eggs as well and they just come back triple fold.
