well if you believe in prayer, just pray for the plant. If you don't cross your fingers, I will do both.

Looks like after today's deluge of rain it is time to yank the tomatoes out of the pots and buy some pepper seed. Or maybe I'll wait until July and plant some yellow crookneck squash in the empty pots.

I am so sorry about your tomatoes. Let's hope the rest of the summer is kinder to you and your garden. AS for the crookneck squash, will be picking our first in a few days and I have spotted a couple patty pans, which are my favorite. I just hope they mature. Even now, that the bees are frequenting the yard, I have a lot of squash that isn't maturing.

I'm about convinced the only way I'm going to get disaster free tomatoes is in a hydroponic greenhouse. Not to wet not to try with food on an even keel.

I have squash. And squash and squash and squash! Tomatoes are coming along, just still green. Cukes are deformed and look like the letter J. Lots of lettuce and peppers and a slew of green beans........BUT......

WHAT are these black hopping bugs on my eggplant??? I noticed the leaves were looking chewed today and sprayed really well with neem oil - and put out watermelon rind because I have so many cuke blossoms that aren't getting fertilized, and tomatillos that are lovely but refuse to set fruit....and tonight I looked at the eggplant and they were covered with these small black shelled round bugs that hopped or jumped, almost like fleas (but I surely know what a flea looks like!).

I sprayed with something more potent but I'm sorta wondering how to attract bees but not kill them with insecticide! Clearly the neem oil wasn't quite the answer???

Always spray any kind of insecticide at dusk even organics. Some cucumbers have to grow on a trellis to grow straight especially the burpless varieties. Sounds like you have a good case of flea beetles. I don't know if the organic Rote-none will control them or not. Maybe time to visit the county's ag extension agent.

I use egg shells on my flower bulbs. It does the same as bone meal.
