Picked a few peas. I can save seeds from several things this year cos none of my seeds are GMO now. I found seed companies that can supply all the kinds of things I want to grow.
The Lima beans and green beans have reached the top of the bamboo “goal post” I made for them, and are still going UP. Last year Japanese beetles tore my green bean leaves up, and I had my mind made up to get a beetle trap this year, and I did. I’ve read articles that they attract more than they catch, but I don’t think that’s the case here. I had a lot of them last year and that’s why I bought the trap. And I had a few in the trap within a few hours of putting it out there. I’m catching a few in a jar each day and dumping them in the trap by hand, but a lot are finding their own way in, so I think the traps are worthwhile. And these traps are good since there is no poison; no harm to the environment or other bugs.
I have a couple of groups of black eyes peas that are getting huge and now starting to send out winders.
The rabbit fence is about to become a trellis for black eyes and a group of green beans I planted late inside there too. Yea, I had mentioned that I love the summer….yea.
I used to hang beetle traps like that in my chicken’s run/coop area, with the bottom cut out of the bag. The beetles would fly in, the chickens would wait underneath the open bag…
Ha, that’s funny! A chicken feeder with the feed flying out of the sky. I bet they’d be a good crunchy bit for the chickens. Hateful little things for some veggies and all roses. Hope you’re having a good weekend.
It all looks so beautiful!
Thanks. It is so rewarding to be able to grow things, especially food.
Looking good! 🙂
Thanks Jackie. I hope you’re doing well!
I am thanks! 🙂
