This 1st photo is 6/26 from the front.
Amongst the trombocinos are French Breakfast Radishes. I was hoping they'd help keep the squash bugs away.
No such luck. I've been finding eggs on the Waltham Butternut Squash in the back left. These eggs are on a tomato leaf. I even found some nymphs today.
I think I'm keeping up on squashing them though. I'm not seeing too many adults (20?).
My big issue now is cucumber beetles. I have yellow sticky traps up. I need to put the lure on them.
I also sprayed the squash leaves with pyrinthium rotone - an organic pesticide. It will kill bees so I'll want to be careful when things start to flower.
The peas were productive 5/26. I planted amish snap peas, snow peas, and 2 other kinds I can't remember now. The snaps taste the best. The snow peas are noticely less tasty and are tougher.
Today, they're at the end. There are still some but it's probably time to take them down & plant pole beans.
This is 7/11 overhead. And 7/12.
