Our garden is growing great, but I am still fighting the Colorado potato beetle and some very nasty squash bugs. I have saved the potatoes but I am now finding beetles on my tomatoes. So, I have resprayed with spinosad. I am hoping this wipes out the little demon beetles! I also, sprayed the squash bugs with a mixture of blue dawn dish soap and water. This has been very successful at killing them.
My favorite new vegetable in our garden is this lettuce! Our neighbors grew it last year and had lettuce all summer long. I hope mine last, but I have already lost a few plants to bugs. My kids are even eating salad with this lettuce!
This is the first year we have had any luck growing onions. They are starting to bulb up!
