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: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
