Barbara, perhaps you should try molten aluminum on the fire ants.

Do you have any idea what ate your nectarines?

Sounds like you live in a swamp Randall.  I could use some of that rain.  I've had none for 9 days, and then only a tenth of an inch.  Very little for the last month.

Shoulda, coulda, woulda.  Brand new tree, only 3 nectarines on it. I thought about bagging them as Daniel has written about.  Now I know why he does it. Better luck next year, eh?

Perhaps you could pick them when unripe and let them ripen in the kitchen?

Rats! Drat! Darn, darn, darn... I had three nectarines that were ripening nicely, soon to be picked. I was so looking forward to my very first fruit - went out yesterday and found three pits on the ground.  Pits no less, nothing else!

Joan, I checked on the ants - they are still there. I think only a backhoe will get rid of them. :(

Hang in there Randall. We actually had two whole days without rain - the grass dried and I was able to mow the lawn. My butternut squash and one lone monister-sized cantaloupe are ripening!

Crap--another inch of rain overnight. And more is forecast.  Fields are flooded. When they have to close a golf course, you know there's a lot of water.

I began weeding my green beans and was surprised to see actual green beans hanging down! So, as soon as I get off the computer, I'm going out to pick them. Now I have to toss out last year's freezer beans. Ouch. Grin and bear it.

Barbara, I am sorry to learn diatomaceous earth did not work for you. Sounds like you found a remedy that works for you. I have a lot of Equal in my basement. I don't like the metallic taste. Now, I can use it on any future ant problems. Thanks for the tip.
