Anyone else getting ready for Alex?

Post  elliephant on 6/29/2010, 12:45 pm

We're about an hour inland, so should just be a heavy rain and wind event here, but we went out and cleaned up the backyard last night, putting everything loose in the garage.
I don't have too much going in the garden right now, just peppers and squash. The squash have powdery mildew and the peppers aren't producing because of the heat, so not too terribly worried about either. I would like the peppers to hang on until it cools down, but they are taller than their cages and really brittle, so I'm not sure if they will withstand the wind.
This is my first "big" storm since we moved here almost a year ago, so pretty interesting to me.

Maybe the storms will kill off the stupid leaf-footed bugs

You have my sympathies. I hope and pray you won't have any damage from Alex, except in the bug department. We could allow him to take care of that!

Have you tried dish detergent and water on the leaf-footed fiends?

Yup. Fewer than before, but they're still hanging around.

We've had infestations of the dratted things on asparagus, so I feel your pain. One year I grew orange portulaca, and when I looked at the blossoms, I thought I saw them moving somehow. Turned out they were full of orange-red leaffooted bug nymphs! In addition to a saucer of soapy water, a pair of scissors helped me cull that population.

I hope all goes well with Alex. Hopefully it will whip those bugs out.
