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.

Chris, I took advantage of no shipping charge at Amazon and stocked up on colouring books today. I won't have to go out for months, lol. I found a coloring book to match the ORIGINAL Secret Garden, yeahhh!

Joan, I'm trying the baking soda/equal route with the ants. It has definitely reduced one large, and eliminated another. Or I think it has, it may just be all the rain has driven them underground.  Once it stops raining and dries out completely they may come back or revive themselves. We'll see. I tried DE, and they just ignored it.

Spud, that is probably what I should have done with my strawberries. Next year I'm going to plant in hangers and get them up off ground.

I can almost see you, Barbara: the quiet concentration on plants, animals or beautiful things. The same here - I finished colouring my second mandala today.
