Beautiful, Daniel!

Daniel, what a great amount of good food you have.  Makes my mouth water!

The last two weeks have been unusually cold, so my watermelon may fail again, but my berries are looking great!

Enjoyed the photos, Daniel (as always). I'll check out your garden blog in a sec.

My electric fence surrounding my sweet corn patch wasn't working properly, I discovered (more raccoons). Two reasons: my iron posts were grounding the charge, and the wires were touching weeds and corn. I finally got brave enough to touch the wire myself to remedy the situation--hopefully! It's just a mild shock, but effective--again, hopefully.

One other update: I've officially caught 9 moles and 7 "piney" squirrels this searson. And I watched a couple of deer eating apples off the ground. No, I didn't try to catch them!

I got help from the weather, Daniel. July has been wet and cool - I enjoy it enormously. It seems to be a new pattern here; spring and autumn warm and rather dry and summer is rainy and cool. Winter is rainy and colder. I remember rainy summers from when I was a child, but there were not as many as now.

Daniel, I commented on your garden blog site.

What a good harvest, Daniel! From my small patch I got lots of herbs, enough to freeze for the wintertime, and handfuls of lettuce. The carrots and beets look promising and the phloxes are just wonderful!

Oh, yes.  The sting of that electric wire will deter lots of pests.

I now have the ultimate solution--besides not planting sweet corn at all. An electric wire! Borrowed what I needed from my son-in-law yesterday. Strung it up in about an hour, and voila, no raccoons over night!

Randy, I included how to make compost tea as an example of how to make a tea of your concoction of  "pepper, bleach, and garlic to spray on the corn silks". Maybe by straining the mixture, it would not clog up your sprayer.
