How is your garden growing?

July 10, 2011

So by reading everyone's posts, there are many backyard garden growers.

In my garden this year the 'maters are awesome. (Better boys, romas, and another smaller slicing 'mater I can't remember the name of).

The peppers are also strong and vibrant (Hot banana, poblano, and one called Gypsy that is like a smaller green bell but soft yellow in color).

My straight-necked yellow squash started out great guns, but an infestation of squash beetles has caused them all to wilt and die. I have used sevin dust, and the beetles have died, but I did not treat in a timely manner, so they have bit the dust.

My eggplant has been munched on by something, my guess is a small grasshopper. I have used sevin dust on them, but they are just showing a "failure to thrive".

My garden is not so big this year, and I have fewer varieties of veggies. But we have been able to consume everything or trade with other gardeners, so there is no waste.

So, how are y'alls garden growing..... Quest .......

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
