Nice! The Secret Garden! It was my mother-in-law's favorite book. Would have been nice if she hadn't mixed it with half-baked xtian science ideas...
Vegetable Pest Control from Gardens Alive
Barbara, I do too know what I would use on corn crops, Pyola® Insect Spray from Gardens Alive.
I started using Gardens Alive products before my kids graduated from high school. After they all moved out I changed my vegetable garden into an ornamental one. I will be returning to that product.
Pyola® Insect Spray
Barbara, the years I lived in Texas, all each location, I planted sweet corn. It did very well, except for those damned insects and fungi! I used pounds of Sevin in order to get a decent yield.
Well, now I know that Sevin is not a safe chemical. Every gardener had sacks and containers full of the stuff in their sheds..
Sevin Dust is NOT Your Garden Friend!
I don't know what I would use now. I haven't grown corn in at least 20 years. If you find out, let me know because I will be growing vegetables again when I move to Newport.
I've planted peas, squash, and melons in containers, then into the garden when they get a few inches tall. They seem to grow OK.
Joan, I've seen three versions of The Secret Garden, own the one I like the most, and watch it every year. I plan on watching all versions.
Daniel, nice picture. I see ladybugs in my garden every once in a while, and it makes my day.
Barbara, your lemon cucumbers sound healthy. I've loved cucumbers most of my life, but stopped growing them a few years ago because they're tasteless to me now. If I hear of a strong-flavored kind, I'll try it.
Daniel, it looks like your work force of aphids and butterflies have their summer all planned out.
How happy I would feel if I could find even one ladybug on any of my plants. I haven't used insecticides, so I don't know why they didn't get to work this spring.
I am harvesting garlic today; one of my favorite tasks.
Randy, what is your USDA plant zone? If I read
If I read the catalogs correctly, nectarines do not do well in Spokane, or Newport, WA. With the changing in weather and temperatures being so unpredictable, I don't know if plant zones will matter much anymore. I enjoy the taste of nectarines and buy them at the grocery store all the time. I am sure having them in your yard and picking and eating them fresh can't be topped.
The killer for me is the late frosts that kill the blossoms.
