This is my update for June 23, 2009. The big story this week is having to fight Japanese Beetles. I got back from my business trip and for two straight days fought these little destructive creatures. They nearly wiped out my Grapes and also had started in on my Raspberries, Peppers, Basel and Beans. I had to spray the entire garden with pesticide just to kill the ones that were feeding on everything. I also put out two traps to collect as many of the others as I could. So far it has worked. I have collected thousands of beetles in these traps and the pesticide has kept them away from the garden for the time being. Other than that, the garden has done quite nicely while I was gone. We have had a ton of rain so the Squash and Cucumber leaves were turning a little yellow. I propped the containers up on bricks so that they would drain better and it has fixed that problem. Also, I found that watering the Cucumbers at night is better. I was watering them in the morning and most of it evaporated and when the leaves got wet, in the heat of the day it would turn the leaves white around the edges. Watering them at night has stopped that problem and they seem to like it. This week it will be in the mid to high 90s so there should be a lot of growth by next week to update you on. The main thing is keeping those freaking beetles away from everything. If anyone has any additional ideas on ways to get rid of them, I am all ears. I hope you like the video this week and I will update you again in another week or so. Happy Gardening.
