Joan, that site on sweat bees didn't address how to keep them away. I've sprayed on "Off", bleach, soaps, etc. Nothing works. No big deal--there are many bigger things to be concerned with!

Good looking garden, as usual, Don. My brocolli and cabbage were very good this year. I have frozen most of it. My biggest disappointment has been Swiss Chard. I suspect rabbits. No beets, either. Again, rabbits. Grrr.

Broccoli is usually a waste of time in our heat. Occasionally we have a cool enough spring to grow it. But it's rare so most of us don't bother.
Horse flies, sweat bees, mosquito, fleas. If it bites, human or animal, ky has it. Ticks haven't been bad this year but that could be the chickens are free ranging and getting them before they get us.

Don, that's a nice brocolli.
i planted some brocolli seeds in July to produce in fall. We'll see if it works.

Don, thanks. i'll do that. This is my year-of-the-squash, dozens of zucchinis, a couple dozen spagetti squashes, big and small winter squashes and many pumpkins, mainly French pumpkins. I eat squash in some form almost every day now.

Dainiel--I just shred them, pack them into Ziplocs, and freeze them.  Couldn't be simpler.  I add them to soups in the winter--great thickener.

Our raspberries (the bearing canes) did not do well this year, although next year's canes  look healthy.  It's an old bed, over 20 years in that spot.  If next year is no good, I guess I'll have to replant.  But the rest of the garden is doing very well.

Don, I agree with Daniel about your great views.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 20, 2016 at 10:05am

No sweat bees here that I'm aware of.

Don, love your gorgeous views!
Do you do any blanching or just shred and freeze? I have a bunch of zucchinis to freeze as well.

Joan, I hear you about the migration. If Im not careful, I'll start ranting. Build a wall! (kidding) :-) The traffic, the rudeness, the congestion....

The sad thing - a lot is white flight from California. Portland is by far the whitest major city in the country. Vancouver has about the same demographicm although my neighborhood is more diverse.

Got my first ojra pod yeasterday! Hoping for more! Now I hand-pollinate the flowers, like I do with squash. Maybe that helps.
