Envy, envy, envy! Those apricots, Spud! I got a measly one (1) off two trees. My nectarines are all wormy. And all the other garden photos make me jealous. But, like I always say, everything is relative--most people are envious of my yard and garden.

Spud, you can talk science here, all you want!  It's my favorite topic too.

Don, I wish I could grow better cabbages.  Here the cabbage flies and/or slugs have a field day.  I'm getting some collard greens now, but far from pretty.

Not that I"m complaining.  Harvested my first 2 figs today!  I've been checking the trees every day.  Sweet as honey.

O, of course! I never see those things here.

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 14, 2016 at 11:40am

Plinius, the spiral around my apricot is a soaker hose.  The best way I've yet found to water it.

Comment by Don on July 14, 2016 at 10:28am

Let us note with serious concern that insects worldwide have been on the decline . . .

Now that you mention it, I haven't seen the white butterflies in years! Koolwitje is their name here: cabbage white.

What are you doing with the spiral around your apricot?

That looks very edible, Don!

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 14, 2016 at 10:02am

Beautiful Don.  I'm envious.

Many years ago, when I lived close to the countryside, I was always fighting the offspring of the white butterflies, that were munching on my brassicas.  A few years ago, in town, I tried brassicas again.  I saw quite a few white butterflies landing on them, but no offspring, so no munching.  Don't know why.

And our salad bowl runneth over . . .

At our elevation (1700 ft.) here in northern Vermont, and with plenty of air circulation, I seldom have much trouble with insects.  Here are my red cabbages, with arugula as companions, and my broccolis and Brussels sprouts, all unmolested so far . . .

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 14, 2016 at 8:12am

I don't have as much trouble with critters eating my garden as you guys that live in the country, but the squirrels have increased their pestiness/peskiness this year.  They never bothered my apricots much years ago, when I had a tree that was a different variety, but they like the nuts from this one, and waste the fruit.  Well, I managed to get 15 pounds off my little tree anyway, and I'm trying to think of a way to keep them from doing it next year.
