Garden related news
Since the stinkbugs have completely gotten out of control in the garden, I resorted to a little "shock and awe" campaign by using some Spectracide mixed at double strength. I really hated to do it, but nothing left in the garden requires pollination from bees - so at least I know they won't be harmed. Anyway, there wasn't an insect to be seen the following day, as was expected. Sevin doesn't even compare to this stuff....
The green beans have really kicked into high gear now, and a gallon was picked the other day. Yeehaw! The okra are being allowed to go to seed, and any new blooms that form are being pinched off.
Also, most of the soil that was in swc's has been put into storage for the winter, and my back is sure glad of it! I wear a brace while doing any lifting, due to the chronic back problem and all.
Fall seedlings of lettuce, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower are still doing well, and will be exposed to more sunlight from here on out. The little greenhouse and coldframes will be put into place very soon, but not until a few weeks still.
Although some summer veggies are still growing pretty good, all focus has been put onto the upcoming composting cycle, the winter planting, and also the various projects lined up. Speaking of projects, I've got one finished already......Yeah, I work pretty quick.
Now for the unveiling of the welder
A link has been placed on the right side of this page that will lead you to the post about the homemade welder, or you can click HERE, and it will take you to the page, too. I hope you enjoy it!
Take care, and happy gardening!
