Greetings fellow gardeners. Your photos inspire me to get up early and tend to my jungle. 

Daniel, your garden amazes me and to think you have challenges other than gardening to which you attend. 

Randy,your sunflowers healthy standing tall and erect. They reveal you have soil that provides all they need

I ran across an interesting paper from U of Idaho, while looking for information while I was at Laura's. 

Homeowner Guide to Bees

There is a small blip about Sweat Bees but does not have information on repellant. 

The following article may be useful:

What gets rid of sweat bees without using chemicals?

Randy, that is inspiring! great photo!

That sunflower on my pic was volunteer.

Just beautiful, Randall! Don't compare...

Comment by Randall Smith on August 23, 2016 at 7:53am

Here's my sunflower/corn version. Not nearly as nice as Daniel's.

Comment by k.h. ky on August 22, 2016 at 2:01pm
@ Daniel, no I've not planted any raspberries. The few vines that are here were here when we moved here. I this they're wild if there is such a thing. If there was ever an old homestead here there are no remains of it anywhere.

I have a pumpkin from the hugelculture bed! I had given up.

Daniel, I love that photo of the sunflower, corn, and marigolds! What a combination. I can almost match it (and I'll try later).

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on August 21, 2016 at 7:54pm

Kathy,  have you ever planted in summer for fall crop?  We never did that in the midwest, and I didn't used to do it here, but this year it's looking good.

Randy, I  think it's time for some barbecued rabbit.

I usually mix flowers in with the vegetables.  The marigolds were from seeds I saved last year. 

The tree is Asian pear.   There are also some early apple varieties bearing now.

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.
Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on August 20, 2016 at 11:16am
Don, that's a nice brocolli.
i planted some brocolli seeds in July to produce in fall. We'll see if it works.
