Want to ask the pro. Something is eating my bell peppers. I am not sure what. Aphids maybe? What can I put on them? I suppose it could be slugs, but they would have to be crawling pretty far up to get at the leaves at this point.

First frost as early as 09/15. Season totally done by 9/30. However just yesterday we had snow in the mountains. The last two days saw highs in the mid 40's.

It's challenging here for warm season crops.

Back in WV we used to use a mix of soapy water and Redman tobacco. We'd make a bucket of water, drop a whole pouch of Redman in it and let it steep. Recipes for it are on-line. It did a good job repelling most bugs and is non-toxic. You have to frequently re-apply though.

We did the same with liquid fertilizer- we'd get fresh cowpies and let them steep in a 5 gal bucket of water then pour along plants as a side dressing.

If you're sure aphids is the problem try the Canola Oil, Soap, Water mix. 1/2 cup Canola Oil, 1/2 tablespoon of dishsoap, 1 Gallon of water. Test the spray on 1 plant first.

The center part of the country is getting the heat while you keep getting the dips. Jet stream keeps dipping bringing cold air down. I see its below freezing at 8000' down to Salt Lake City Utah

It’s taken a few years to get into the rhythm of FLorida gardening. Summer is high heat and I’m growing what works here. Full sun on any plant instructions, does not mean Florida full sun. I found what I normally planted in the spring when I lived in the Midwest and NY, needs to be planted in early September and mid-January here.

Everglade tomatoes and okra can really take the heat and so can sweet potatoes, but rabbits ate my sweet potato leaves and kept eating them every night I’ll try again next year with some cages when the plants are young.

Here’s my garden produce picked yesterday: Everglades tomatoes, Clemson spineless okra, a pineapple I got before the racoons did, and I potted up two ripened seeds from my curry leave tree/plant.

Try some diatomaceous earth, it's either food or plant grade. It's a fine powder, and you can just sprinkle it on the leaves needed. It won't hurt the plants.

Home Depot or Tractor Supply prob have it. No more than $10. Lasts forever.

Garden is coming along good, all the extra rain we had in late spring helped. The strawberries are delicious and I keep eating them, most never make it inside.
