    Lift & sliders & some other stuff.
    The garden is doing pretty well. Tomatoes, green beans, red lettuce, yellow squash, and onions are great. I've had some pest problems with my zucchini, cucumbers, radishes, and basil though. Had to replant the zuccinni and one of the cucumbers because something had eaten all the leaves. The picture of the cucumber was a couple hours after I had just planted it. Could be bugs, birds, or squirrels. Used some Captain Jacks spray for the bugs, and a spray I made from garlic and cayenne pepper for the others. Seems to be working. Strange because I've never had a pest problem until this yearIMG_1452.jpg IMG_1444.jpg IMG_1443.jpg .

    My biggest issue with pests/ insects is the squash vine borer and cucumber beetles ( spotted)

    I might need to pick up some fertilizer or compost because I didn’t mix any and when I bought some four-way soil

    No picture taken tonight but the heat kind of messed up my tomatoes and my Romain lettuce (both of which aren’t in the metal tubs and also have the miracle grow potting soil) wilted it pretty good the other plants still trying to get to take off and fertilized tonight as well. It’s kind of crazy that The tomatoes and the Romain are doing the best out of anything in my garden even though this four-way soil that the local landscape company got me said would work great with vegetables. I also went to the store and bought bigger cages for the tomato plants have my daughter help me takeoff the old ones and put the new ones on I went from small ones to 56 inch ones I think. The real test will be this weekend when The Wife and I go camping probably gonna need the neighbor to come over and water the garden

    I picked up 15 gallon grow bags. I am sure I will be happy with . Root temperature will be more natural and not suffocating when the sloppy weather comes. Excellent drainage and no growing medium loss while watering


    Edit: these . I would give these a try

    Speaking of which, @melikeymy beer , you get through all those storms and flooding OK? We went to Mizzou for sons graduation when the flood storms started, and made it home without issue. Not true the next day!

    I'd be skeptical of fertilizer from the cemetery, frankly...

    Yes, thanks. No risk of flooding where I'm at but we had had a tornado pass about 1 mile north of us and we lost some shingles.

    I’ve got something eating holes in my tomato leaves egg plant leaves and bean leaves and pepper leaves. They are not bothering with my cucurbits I mixed up a gallon of Neem oil and I am waiting for it to dry up a bit before I apply it to the leaves .
