Oh, it didn't come easily! I've been fighting a constant battle with aphids, using a one-two punch of insecticidal soap followed by diatomaceous earth. As far as I can tell, neem oil doesn't do much.

Neem oil only affects Aphids if it is sprayed directly on them. If it is sprayed on the plant, the Aphids will eat right through it.  Sad  Spinosad, on the other hand, will kill them either way.

That's how it appeared to me! I'm glad (in a sad sort of way  Sad  ) to have my observations confirmed.

I just added Spinosad to my arsenal. I'm ready for the aphids and spider mites this summer.

Not to be confused with Spinosaurus ...

   What are you eating from your garden today? - Page 13 330px-Spinosaurus_life_restoration_with_Onchopristis

though I imagine it would do a pretty good job eliminating aphids and everything else.

So, which brand/make spinosad do you recommend?

Looking on-line, I see one source that is selling a "concentrate" for 90$ a gallon. But it only has 0.5% spinosad Shocked

Mark, I use BONIDE's Captain Jack's Dead Bug Brew, which is available in both Ready-To-Spray, and as a Concentrate. Locally, it is available at both Lowe's and Home Depot.  16 ounces of concentrate, which is used at the rate of 1/2 ounce per quart of water, is about $20.

So that's why my Neem Oil doesn't work on aphids. I've got spinosad concentrate on hand now. Bring them on!

Spinosad has a stronger odour, stays in the soil only 24 hours before dissipating, so that's good. I have an essential oil spray (1 tsp organic dish soap, 5 drops each clove, peppermint and rosemary essential oils in a quart/liter of water) that really brings down the aphid population. I still have aphids (this is my indoor garden), but I can actually sprout carrot and beet and bean seeds. For indoors, I prefer using the essential oil spray.

My daughter cooked 1 large and one smaller celeriac root for part of dinner:

It's been an interesting experiment, but I'm not sure it's worth the squares.

I tried celeriac root, I didn't really like it, but everyone has their own tastes.

And I most often eat either salad, if there is not a lot of time, or we fry steaks: D

The celeriac, when it's not too fibrous, tastes like mildly celery-flavored potatoes.

The stems taste exactly like celery, but are too fibrous except chopped up and added to stir fry. The stems also have an odd thing that some of them grow a membrane over the celery "trench", so I suppose you could use them as biodegradable soda straws Laughing

It turns out that my family really liked them, so I might be growing them again. Later.

Had the first Baby Kale Leaf Salad for dinner.  Can't believe how fast those plants are growing, they seem to love this cool, damp weather we have been having. And the young leaves are so tender and sweet tasting.

Found a huge softball-sized turnip that I peeled off the outer "rind", and gave it a taste (not expecting much) and it was good enough to use in a slaw with red peppers and onions, marinated in a vinaigrette dressing. Glad I didn't toss it into the compost.
