Garden Co Op at 46 Days

The Garden at 46 Days
We have lots of Tomatoes and Peppers coming on.
The Melons, Pumpkins and Potatoes all have blossoms too.


Melon Blossom

Pumpkin Blossom

And we have Japanese Beetles! We don't want these guys to tear up all our plants so Sara sprayed some Organic Pesticide on the Pole Beans and the Apple and Pear trees

Hi Carolyn :)

I hate Japanese Beetles! They always eat my roses. Let me know if the spray works :)

awesome job! looks great.

My mom gardens quite a bit. I used to help her with the beetles.

What I did was carry a large bucket or bowl of water with me, not filled to the tippy top. I merely swept the beetles into the bucket, winding up with a bucket with all these guys swimming around.

They can't get out of the water and essentially drown. The beetles are slow, so it's pretty easy to nab them.
