Joan, Gardens Alive is based in Indiana. I'd like to visit it sometime. As for my climate zone, it's 5 (50 miles NW of Indianapolis).

More rain overnight, this time with wind. Blew down some willow tree limbs (soft wood) which will take my chain saw to clean up. Worse than that, my sweet corn has been flattened. Happens EVERY year, I swear (and literally so). Cleaning up the yard and propping up the corn stalks is not my idea of spending a nice quiet Fathers Day.

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.  

Pyola® Insect Spray

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.

Comment by Idaho Spud on June 20, 2015 at 1:34pm

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.
