Shoda: San Leandro Garden Update July15

Post  pat&kathy on 7/17/2010, 1:33 pm


I found this little guy hopping around the garden while I was watering.

Cuccumber plant

Sickly broccoli...

Here's why - green aphids?

pepper plant

cherry tomato

cherry tomato flowers

zucchini flowers. Shoda, how do you hand pollinate with a brush? What does a male vs female flower look like?

Here's a couple zucchini growing - I have 3 big plants ...how many should there be per plant?

Sun scalded beet greens?

Pea flowers and pea pod.

Bush Beans - I think the little green cucumber beetle below has thinned out my harvest.
The leaves are pockmarked with bites. How many beans should a plant produce? The beans I do have are nice. They seem to go for leaves not fruit.

OH! I hate cucumber beetles, I really, really, really do. Evil or Very Mad

Your plants look great!

To pollinate with a brush, you literally just stick a brush in there, wipe it around, and move on to the next flower.

A male flower has a skinny stem only. A female flower typically has what looks like a miniature fruit behind it. From what I've seen, often the male flowers come first, and the female flowers come a little later on.

How is your garden growing?? :?:

P.S. REALLY cute frog!!!

From what I understand, the biggest threat of the cucumber beetle adult is spreading disease. It that right?

They spread bacterial wilt, which killed my cukes. Not sure what else they do. Evil or Very Mad

From what I have read you really need the big guns. The more poisonous of the sprays. Organics such as pyrethrim and perethrim, I think (the second is not organic). They are both good bug killers but pretty broad spectrum.
