    Zucchini '8 ball' Setting Fruit, Summer squash, tatauma/tataume Harvesting, and Squash, Table dainty Dying
    So first, an update on stink bugs. So far, I’ve got 5 traps deployed along the perimeter of the yard. The 4 along the back fence line, particularly the ones in the silver maple and choke cherry trees, are bringing in a lot of bugs. Despite the early start, I’m still seeing mostly nymp...

    A Bloomin' Success

    There are not many times when a person can look at their efforts and feel proud to be rewarded by healthy and colourful growth. Looking at my Rooftop Veggie Garden, the one with a few flowers growing around in it (so why shouldn’t the bees and other fertilising insects have a fair selection...

    Other Plantings Around the House in July

    Kingsburg 2010 garden

    2010 Container garden
    I have been absolutely awful about updating this season – I never even got my new plants into my little plant database. But despite my technological neglect, the garden is doing pretty well this year. I bought most of my plants because I was away when I normally would have started seeds. I ...
