The summer garden is in full bloom here at Bulldog Pottery
Ed and Gloria have really focused this year on maintaining, watering, fertilizing, weeeeeding, and making sure the "bad" bugs don't out rival the "good" bugs. Though there are some bad bugs that the good bugs consider dinner so really they are not so bad after all, when you think about. We have had to use some insecticidal soap on a few outbreaks of aphids that the ladybugs just could not keep up with them. Hand picking off the insects that think our plants are their lunch, seems to work just fine. The squash bugs are aggressive, prolific little boogers, and they have taken out a few squash plants. If we can find their eggs in time that really seems to help.
