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 

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 20, 2015 at 2:16pm

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.

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.
