lol. They like Clovers.. I got them all over my grass so its a big feast for them. FYI.. they didn't touch my garden except the lettuce. I blocked off the string beans at the bottom. Maybe they don't eat where they sleep..or were born. LOL

Yup.. 12 days later they started roaming around and left their birth place. Little ones still stay nearby but are eating on their own. Pretty amazing to watch from nest building to new borns to them on their own within 2-3 weeks.

I'm trying to make a video of the event but time getting in the way.

here's a couple of pics.. There was just 2 in the litter. Strange. Here are the 2 siblings. I don't see them together anymore. I call 1 of them the runner since he/she is running more than the other.



Not sure which one this was but obviously on its own eating in the evening.

Mmmm, More today!





This one I'm leaving on the plant, let it get overgrown then change to yellow and I will save the seeds from this one. National Pickling.



Time to make the pickles

YUM!

Seeing those pictures of your harvest makes me almost want to try my hand at gardening. Operative word: almost.

Some pics from this morning...

This is what you call Blight. Yellow leaves = too much water but spots = Blight.
4 cups of water with 1 teaspoon of Baking soda. Spray on leaves once a week. Should slow or stop the disease. Don't use chemicals unless you like eating it.

We have had limited sunny days here in CT. Rain and Clouds is not a helper of blight issues.



Funky Pepper Plant!



Good Frying Peppers



Starting to change colors. These are HOT to the tongue touch. Wow.



Nobody can tolerate these so I will probably make Salsa or something.



Cute Purple ones. Also Hot.

Cam, Have experienced Japanese beetles in your garden? These insects are eating my string bean leaves like crazy. Any effective way to get rid of them?

Thanks for the reminder.. incredible turn around from last year! Last year there were hundreds and eating all my Cucumber, String Beans and Potato leaves..... this year I don't see any!

Last year all I was doing is just knocking them into a pail full of water. It's pretty easy to knock them in.

I also remember putting down GrubEx from Scotts. Not in the garden beds but on the lawns itself.

I also put my wood stove ash from the winter in the garden beds...

Hmmm, wonder if all that did the trick! It's about controlling them "before" they hatch.

Milky Spore will help too and wont harm the veggies but man it's expensive. I decided against it.

There are other natural ways to fight it if you want to try them... Even Copper Pennies?

Nice tip on the baking soda. I hope I remember it next year! Regardless of the blight, I'm jealous how great your peppers look. We've gotten some banana and jalapeƱo peppers, but they really aren't flowering like they should. The plants look good and I have noticed more flowers since we had a week in the 80's. I'm thinking the near 100 degree days we had earlier kinda messed things up all around my garden. All in all, we are getting plenty, so I can't really complain too much. :-)
