@ 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).

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.

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.

No sweat bees here that I'm aware of.

No humidity and no bugs at all here in northern Vermont at the height of our all-too-brief gardening season.  Beautiful weather.  Cooking down tomatoes and shredding zukes for the freezer today, while others in the household are picking wild blackberries, which are really plentiful this year.

Kathy, your humidity sounds unbearable, and the bugs, just awful. I would invite you to move to the northwest, however, with the balmy weather we have, the entire nation will be migrating to the northwest. Just the load of people arriving by the millions will make Washington state heavy on the continent and tip us right off into the Pacific Ocean. 

Randy, the sweat bees are new to me. I Googled how to eliminate sweat bees, and the remedy does not look easy. Here is what I found. Wish I could find a better way to get rid of them. 

How to Eliminate Sweat Bees

There is a whole page of solutions, and none of them look too promising. It is the sweet sweat that lures them to you ... at least that what is claimed. 

I wonder if eating garlic helps? What do construction workers, gardeners, or road crews do?
