Good Year!

I am very pleased with my garden this year. The weather has been cooperating nicely. Just enough rain to keep the plants thriving. As usual almost every corn and bean seed germinated. Last year I had hard luck with my cucumbers. I was invaded with cucumber beetles and could not get ahead of them. This year I am using Neem Oil to control them. So far it has done the trick. I plan to make many batches of Bread and Butter Pickles as I am down to my last jar. Our strawberries are beginning to ripen. We have a lot of trouble with birds eating them in years past. This year I purchased some row cover cloth and placed it over the plants. We used some rocks to hold the sides of the cloth down. It is working very well.
