My garden is coming along but some of it looks pretty anemic. I was told our soil here is fairly acidic so I thought that was my problem and treated it as such but my soil test revealed that the bigger problem is severe potassium deficiency. It's a little late to help what's out there but I'm starting now on the open areas for my fall garden.

:D Growing you some mini corn?.....

Them some healthy tater bugs for sure.

Don't want to jinx myself but I'm amazed I haven't had trouble with garden pests like one would expect but I'm sure they are on the way.

I figure the mini corn is a great market to be in because I seem to have perfected it.. The tater bugs were loved by my chickens I picked them off and dumped them in the coop and soon as they saw them they ate there tail up.

Jo- Its definitely those potato bugs but I think you need to bypass the 7 dust and seek lead poisoning.
