Potatoes are getting hammer by bugs since it's raining. I planted red and yellow but forgot which is which in the row but one row few bugs other row loaded. I mixed some potato bug spray pretty strong to knock them out before the next monsoon.

What makes summer squash leaves (yellow crookneck) begin to turn yellow? (tomatoes are doing it a little as well..both have been watered plenty. Maybe too much water?

Wished I could let my chickens free range inside the garden for a while. How do you teach a chicken to not eat the blossoms or veggies?

Almost ready for picking, limbs on the verge of breaking. I picked one yesterday and let it soften up overnight, not quite sweet enough yet. Two more days should do it.

I's crazy, Joe. I pulled a hundred or more off it several weeks ago. I have 6x6s and chinaberry logs propped under the main branches.
