Used neem oil spray last night for bug control. It is a great alternative to regular pesticides if you are anti that like I am. Be sure to not use during the heat of the day. Which reminds me those of you who wish to avoid round up for weed control... use salt! Farm salt works great at killing anywhere you don't want to have to weedeat, just sprinkle around mature trees, paths, walks ect. Mixing regular salt, vinegar and water up into a brine is a great alternative for your sprayer, rinse well when done and spray a little water through to clean hose and nozzle. Remember that salt is broad band so whatever you spray it will kill.
The cucumbers are full of blooms and lots of little ones. It will be pickle making time by the weekend! Mom was getting her jars out and ready. Despite having quite a few tomato plants and quite a few on the vine they are not producing like this amount of plants should be. The new growth is looking a little more promising but if they don't really take off soon we will be having to buy some if I want to can much. I have one okra plant so if we want a mess of fried okra I better head to the farmers market!
Mom's green beans did not do well with all the rain she was threatening to just mow them down but hasn't yet. The corn is finally looking like corn lol.
It is a good thing very few of us have to rely upon a garden crop to have food for the year. Yes, it is a nice supplement but thankfully not a necessity. Imagine how much crop failure affected those of yesterday compared to today!
