Be sure to stop by Daphne's to see what everyone else has harvested this week.
I've decided to try to save the limas. I know, but I really had such high hopes for them. As you can see, they're just totally infested with these little boogers: It's just too much to knock off into a cup, so I think I'm going to have to spray, but I don't know what's going to sink through that hard shell of theirs, or if that's even a factor. The leaves themselves are pretty yellowed and mottled, but I'm hoping that's just because they've not gotten the water they should. I'm going to cut off some of the more offending branches and hope for the best. I really want those limas.
I took out the bush beans today to make room for the cabbages and the broccoli. The tomatoes will likely come out this evening when it cools off. Looks like I'll get to sit down today with my graph paper and really make a good map. I'm thinking rutabaga. I tried some last year, but it never bulbed up. Wonder if I should try again....
If you know what can kill those crazy triangle bugs, let me know.
