Bugs Be Gone Please
My zucchini and cucumber recovered from the cucumber bug attack, and now the leaves on my green beans are being eaten by these unwelcome visitors. Does anyone know what they are? I sprayed them with Sevin, and they are now history. Last year I didn't have a bug problem, but I guess I'm being welcomed to the world of gardening this year.
On a good note, my tomatoes are doing well. This is a Brandy Wine. So far they show no signs of cracking! I'm working hard to water regularly and fertilize at least by-weekly. I want big Brandy Wine slices for my BLTs. How often do you fertilize your tomatoes and what do use?
My peppers are gdoing great. These are Hugarian Wax peppers, which I have never tried. I'll be harvesting a few within the next week or so. I have one that is turning orange, which is suppose to be at its hottest stage. I'm going to try it in salsa.
My cukes have recovered from the cucumber bug attack. It has lots of blooms, so I'm hoping for lots of cukes for pickles.
My Wando peas are growing, and I have a few flowers. Not sure how they are going to turn out in the summer heat, but this particular brand is suppose to be heat tolerant. Have any of you grown Wando peas?
This Beefsteak is producing very well too. I'll be planting another batch of bush beans this week. The pole beans are doing great, but I want to make sure I have enough to can.
That's what's happening in my garden. What's happening in yours?
