Pumpkin Patch

  I just a little while ago squashed a bunch of babies on an acorn squash plant ... must have missed that patch of eggs . I try to go out and check for eggs and just generally check the garden out most mornings before the sun comes up over the trees . It's cooler then ... yesterday I noticed a sweet and very nice aroma , turned out it's coming from the flowers of the white greasy beans . I'm going to have to be very careful to keep the fence closed and energized ... there's deers in them thar woods . And they'll decimate a bean patch in a heartbeat .

Not a major problem. Every few years something starts eating the plants so I give them a light spray of insecticide. We try not to spray unless absolutely necessary to save the crop.

  I have bee hives less than 30 feet away ... kinda limits my choices . No insecticides while the plants are blooming . And they are , mostly male flowers right now but I can see some females forming .
