Powdery Mildew Spray with Milk.

Make Your Own NonToxic Garden Bug Spray. - This was my first year of growing damask roses.  In the past, I grew double knock out roses which were hardy and simply laughed at the pests and the elements.  I wasn’t prepared for the amount of insects that adore Damask roses.   I watched in horror as  sawflies and spider mites attacked the plants, [...] The post Make Your Own NonToxic Garden Bug Spray. appeared first on Green Talk®. http://ow.ly/30SLmm

I am thinning 2 trees.  It takes so much time.  Is there a way to do it easier?  Also, I am a little late to thin.  They are more like quarter (June in NJ)  Am I too late?

+Green Talk - You may be too late to get the remaining peaches to bulk up, but there is still benefit as you don't what to overbear on the tree and put too much stress on the branches, as splitting can occur, especially in strong weather. I hope this helps and thanks for watching! Best Regards, DFJ

I am curious too to see how your sweet potatoes fared in such close quarters. I use 20 gallon grow bags and only put one slip in each. I also only let my slips get about 6 inches long before I start to root them.  Since I have a short growing season I put the dirt in the grow bags early and cover with black landscape fabric to get them nice and hot.  Then I poke a hole to insert the slip.  When the slips are too long, it is hard to plant them in prepared dirt.

+The Wisconsin Vegetable Gardener mine are a lot bigger. I think if you only plant one per container, you might do better. I like your idea of the bottomless container. By the way, you can eat the leaves.
