Photo below - yellow crookneck squash.......
Photo below - this zucchini plant doesn't look so scary now, does it? Most people have heard the horror stories about "the monster plant in the garden", but it's nothing more than a big baby if ya take care of it.
Photo below - while checking everything out the other day, I ran across this mature green stinkbug. Stinkbugs cause alot of damage in the garden - especially to tomatoes. If you've ever picked a ripe tomato and discovered some kind of white spot underneath the skin - that's stinkbug damage. Looks pretty scary, doesn't it?
Photo below - Well, it doesn't look scary now! As is done with most bugs in the garden - it was caught, then executed without a trial. Ha! Yeah, i'm pretty rough on bad bugs in my garden, and they meet certain death when an encounter takes place. In a video that will be posted later this week, you'll get the idea. Carnage!!! It's all about carnage!!!! I just know that ribbit is thinking to herself "is there anything that EG won't pick up with his hand?" Hehe...Not much.....
Speaking of bugs, i've got a post coming up that has some cool bug pics included. In one outing, I was able to photograph an adult assassin bug, and also an adult leaf-footed bug. Cool!!!! I like bugs - can ya tell?
In other news, a tour of the garden will be available to the general public on Saturday, June 26th - from 12 pm til 6 pm. Some of the Shoals Master Gardeners requested a visit, and I didn't want to leave out any of my readers from the area. If interested, you can contact me by email for directions.
Take care, and happy gardening!
