As you can see my onion crop is not as good as I hoped. I should be disappointed, but I’m not. I’ve been learning these past years that there is always a good side to things. I think I’m gonna pickle some of these onions. My brother was over the other day telling me how much he enjoyed my pickled vegie mixture I made last year. He espically liked the onions.
I checked on my green beans and they will need picking tomorrow or the next day.
I’ve been very busy this past week getting my Dad’s stuff together for his trip to a Bluegrass Festival in Waldron, AR. He is not walking very well on his new knee so I had to clean and load the 5th wheel trailer for him. I took him down there yesterday and got his trailer loaded with last minute stuff and made the bed. Between work and doing all this I haven’t had much time to do anything in the garden like hoe up grass or kill these blasted Aphids that are all over my squash plants.
Sevin dust is now covering the squash plants; top and bottom of the leaves and the Aphids. I took the last of the Sevin dust and gave the tomatoes a sprinkle just in case.
