wow, you seem to be having a very good year so far. We don't have anything ready to pick but am guessing our cherry tomatoes will be starting to get color in a week or two. We have lots of them, just still to green. I love green tomatoes fried, but only regular size, not cherries. I envy you. But tomorrow is another day and another chance. Everything I have planted is doing well this year except I lost my first Rosemary plant. Put a new one in yesterday.

well we are way behind you but I am picking jalapenos and Anaheim peppers every day. Am going to start sharing them with friends and family. We also have a few bell pepper flowers so shouldn't be too long for them. The Okra is months away and the squash, well, time will tell about them.

I have had a bumper crop of various cherry tomatoes this year. The last bunches are almost ready to pick, and the vines are turning brown. I suppose they must all be determinate. Today I planted a few fresh indeterminate plants, so I’m hopeful they will take over for the others. It may just be that it’s too hot now, but I thought it worth a try.

A bit of silly question, but a question still. I try to use a line of organic fertilizers, insecticides, and other sprays produced by a company in my state. As I was spraying the veggies this morning with the liquid kelp it reminded me that every year I want to put all of the "sprays" into the sprayer at one time. I've never done so, but could I? In general I'm spraying a liquid fertilizer and a soap spray for bugs. I'm not worried about chemical reactions. Just wondering if it would be effective to combine all the sprays into a single gallon of water at once.

Thoughts?

I don’t think I would, not because of a chemical reaction as much as the possibility of rendering the insecticide less effective. Without knowing exactly the combination and carefully testing it is an unknown. I use several organic type insecticides for specific problems.

Well we got just a soft rain for about an hour this am. That is just what our garden loves. I am still picking a few peppers each day and cherry tomatoes. We are having them in our salad tonight.

No squash bugs yet; I didn't go the zinnia route but have been spraying them a little each night or early in the morning before the sun hits the back yard. I have lots of babies so we will see if they turn into grown ups.

Well starting to pick more each morning. Now it is a handful or more of cherry tomatoes each morning, as well as jalapenos and yesterday I picked enough basil to make 10 small cups (paper cups like the dentist uses) of pesto. It is enjoying itself in the freezer right not. Will do more in the fall. The rest of my herbs are just OK, but at least they are not dead.
