It's tough to use a hoe in a mud puddle. And then again at least it is not MO Gumbo...

Lol.........we have some clay patches, the watermelons are planted in one of those patches.
Went out there this morning and got a shoe pulled off, it sure did remind me of that gumbo!

I didn't have gumbo in MO but it was heavy black clay type soil that would grown just about anything except watermelons. I tried it and I swear they tasted like mud.

The good MO melons came from the sandy river bottom, huge black diamond melons could almost hide a child behind them lol. Problem with them was keeping the 'coons from eating them before we could.

well a couple of little squash today (not ready to pick) and yes, I saw and heard a couple of bees, so I am much happier. We have some green beans, not enough to do anthing with for about a week or so and there are tomatoes everywhere. Like Sam said, if they all get ripe at once it is come one, come all!!!! I used to have this with squash. In NM I think the neighbors hid just to keep from my giving them anymore.

Someone posted last year about saving the squash seeds from year to year. Well I did save my winter ones this year and it appears I will have as many squash as I have tomatoes..

Now, the not so good news: the Japanese beetles are already eating the leaves of the green beans. I saw 2 today: any good ideas as to how I can end their lives???? atles

The black caterpillars I cant identify are back on the tomatoes.
-sigh-
Gonna go spray insecticidal soap on them shortly, if I find any of any size, will take pics, maybe someone can help identify them.

Have been picking leaf rollers off of my tomatoes. Better go out and pick some of the yellow tomatoes for lunch.

great, I still have none, but do have blossoms. I just wish those bees would visit a little more. I am about to pick some jalapenos I think. I am still waiting for tomotes to ripen. I must have a hundred or more (I am not kidding) but they are still very green.
