I've never grown my own potatoes before so I've been watching their progress with interest. They look quite beautiful with their blossoms.
Can you plant potatoes mid summer for a fall crop?
The squash and corn patch look like they'll have some competition with the Bermuda grass. I knew this would be a tough area to control this year. We'll see what happens. Bermuda grass is so invasive!
Our first zucchini blossoms of the year.
There's NO stopping the zucchini. It's the one crop I'm guaranteed to get year after year. Too bad zucchini doesn't taste like chocolate...I'd be a real happy girl with that crop.
And the slugs. We never see the little bastards, but I know they're out there. My beans are getting decimated again, just like last year.
I would love to hear some feedback from you all on how to play the "keep away from my plants" game with the slugs. I know I've made a desirable area for them with the cardboard "weed block" that we're using. Can't be helped. The grass will take over if I pull the cardboard. SM calls them "ninja slugs."
I've noticed that they only seem interested in the beans and squash (family). They're not eating anything else. SM went out and bought some slug bait yesterday so we need to get that out. Does it work for anybody?
