Of course; we don't have the resources to grow from seed (though we had tried in the past).

Don't quit, there's a simple solution to that! 1 Cup Canola Oil in 1 Gallon of Water and a small drop of dish soap. Shake and spray. Dont quit!

Before


After spraying twice

Something is eating my wife's tomato blooms. Some limbs are bare from all of the blooms being eaten. She had another big limb break that was loaded down with tomatoes. She has multiple stacks and cages around her plants. There are 8+- big Cherokee Purples on one plant. Something is also eating her squash.

In fact, try the Fungicide on one plant and the aspirin on another. See if one is better than the other.

It's not always raining, there are long breaks. Nothing happening all morning, do it this morning
I went out in the semi darkness last night when it wasn't raining and sprayed again. Black fungus also seems to be affecting my platycodon (flowers) now too and even my ice plant has mostly stopped blooming and turned black. I'll keep trying but this fungus is lethal and it's gonna kill everything else too.

At this moment it is not raining.

We’ve had plants infested with aphids from store bought plants. Inspect them carefully. If you can, try raising from seed.

My wife uses soapy water first, then some biological controls- lacewings I think. My wife said make sure to soak the soil- especially for scale. If too far gone my wife will dig out the entire plant, including immediate soil and pitch it in a black contractor bag and toss them. Don’t compost.

When my tomatoes get munched I use Monterey BT, or, the organic Southern Ag equivalent. Usually works.

Tomato worms glow in black light, so we go out at night to find them. They leave little black poops on the leaves.

I use Take Down Garden spray on bugs (like aphids).

I've tried all kinds of home remedies, but find it easier and more effective to just buy the right stuff to kill them.

Spray either early morning or at sun down to not kill pollinating bugs.

So far, all of the above have made this a really good garden year (so far), but we have had really good weather which helps a lot.

I also blast all new starts with a water stream to knock off any unwanted pests.

We have some Monterey BT- it works well for us.

Our 3 year old haskap berry bushes are producing nicely. We’ve harvested 5 lbs off 4 plants already this year. We’ve harvested about 3lbs of strawberries.

We have a lot of nice bok Choi and lettuce coming in. Taters are looking good, green beans are starting to take off and our radish harvest is over- not as much as we hoped but enough for a batch of Korean radish soup. Cabbage plants look awesome this year and bingo beans are starting to climb.

It’s been a tough year but things are looking up.

When do you sow/plant your bok choi? They always seem to bolt for me when I plant them in the spring.

As soon as the soil is workable. Last year ours bolted because it warmed up fairly quickly. This year it’s been cool and rainy and it’s flat out producing.

My wife primarily planted in raised sheep watering tanks along with lettuce.
