I heard you guys got hit with big winds, even some tornado activity was noted around the state, OG.  Your beans should recover.  Glad the other plants had some help!  

I’m heading out to survey the beds.  Just ordered some mesh to protect the ground cherry plants.  A squirrel got in there and took all the unripe fruits off, and broke a bunch f the stems.  Grrr.  Well I will try to thwart them!

Did you know that Bronner's Peppermint Castile Soap also makes a great insect repellent for your skin while working in the garden?  Mix 2 tsp of soap with 1 cup of water and spray on the exposed skin. Most bugs will not go near it, and if they do land on the skin they aren't likely to bite since the don't like the taste of the soap.  A good non-toxic insect repellent that also washes off easily.

My garlic clean up!  Huge heads of German Hardy on the left, and my first try of Spanish Roja!  Nice!

I will have to give this a try. The tiny Aedes Aegypti leaves 3/4" welts. A shower with Irish Spring gives me a couple hours worth of protection until my blood meal scent comes through.

Got my first 3 sweet banana peppers yesterday from my plant!  Can’t wait to eat them!
Lots of blooms on my Ping Tung eggplant.  One pepper plant isn’t growing at all.  Not sure why.

All of my pepper plants are stunted this year. They got off to a bad start with the very wet and cool spring, which then turned very hot and dry, followed by a monsoon. But, as small as the plants are, they are heavily producing.

Yeah, the peppers have had challenges for sure.  

I need to check my cherry tomatoes!  In the morning!
