Annie, I just saw your photo of glass gem corn. It is so pretty.

Annie, I don't see our photo of glass gem corn. I Googled it and see how pretty it is. I didn't get any seeds in the ground this year ... too busy killing cancer cells.

Thanks, Sentient, for the recipes. It is cheaper than lady bugs. I wonder how they will do with soap? Also, isn't vinegar a plant killer? I will not use it until I do a little testing.

I also like the variety in the kernel colors Annie.  Beautiful.

A rather measly harvest, but I am thrilled nonetheless.  Here is the glass gem corn I grew! It's a popcorn, but I think I will save it for seed and decoration.  I love the variety in the kernel colors.

Randall- that's amazing.  I just bought raspberries at the store (my husband's favorite) and felt I got such a great deal because they were 'only' $2.50 for 6 ounces.  Enjoy!

7 GALLONS!  What a great harvest!  

Comment by Daniel W on June 29, 2013 at 1:40pm

Randall - 7 GALLON!  Amazing!

Over the past month we've had, maybe, 1 gallon of strawberries.  It's a somewhat new patch, and deer ate the 1st growth of leaves, so I'm happy with that.  The plants were moved from past years' plants in barrels and borders, so not entirely new.

Mulberries - I stand by the tree and eat a handful a couple times a  week.  Young tree so not expecting much. 

Still getting some snow peas.  A couple of bowls a week.  Plenty.  Crispy and sweet - eating a snacks.  These are bigger than most - variety is "Oregon Giant".

Joan - I don't know about sueing those who spray neonicotinoids.  Those are big chem company products.  It's like David sueing Goliath, but without the sling shot and god helping out.

Ladybugs are usually great for aphids.   Organic-spray-wise, there's the soap spray in this link.   I use neem oil - available at big box stores - but the soap spray would be cheaper.    The detergent/oil/vinegar spray in this link might work.

Is it feasible for bee keepers to sue those who spray neonicotinoids?

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 29, 2013 at 9:29am

Sentient, so Tanglefoot around trunks keeps aphids from spreading into branches? That works? Dumb me, I didn't know that. Aphids cover my roses and I ordered one package of ladybugs. They have cleared huge numbers of branches and haven't even started on others. I wonder if there is an aphrodisiac for aphids? They are not reproducing fast enough.
