My experiment is working good.
Planted two in a container and put them out in the yard in direct sunlight. They get almost no shade. So far they seem to enjoy it.
Then hurricane Irene and Lee came through and blocked out the sun for ten plus days. According to the news, the northeast has gotten 45 trillion gallons of rain. My point is, we will see how well my squash will fair.

This is it for the beets, turnips and sweet corn (still have pop corn growing). This is my third year to grow corn that matures like this. Eventually I will figure out what I'm doing wrong.
Tomatoes pictured are Beefsteak heirloom, black krim, cherokee purple, totem, and Jenny(the little yellow ones).

I have been noticing a rise in stink bugs on this tree lately. So I'm wondering if this praying mantis has shown up because of the stink bugs.

|This is an example of the very start |
of bottom end rot starting on this tomato.
I can only speak to what I have encountered and I encounter it every year. Every year the tomatoes I grow in pots get this. Unfortunately I'm reactive instead of proactive. So I wait until they show signs of bottom rot before I treat them. Kind of as if maybe this will be the year that it doesn't happen.
Next is to figure out why the leaves are turning yellow and falling off on the bottom of these potted tomato plants.?!?

So far this year is looking to be the best year, if everything that is on it now will mature. There is roughly 70-100 figs on this little tree.
Interesting enough, when i was taking pictures this morning i noticed that there were all of these stink bugs in the tree. Im not sure what they are doing but my new goal is to eliminate their existence in this tree.
I love figs and they are difficult to come by. That is why i grow them.
In this picture if you can click on it to make it bigger and zoom in on the branch you will see some stink bugs. I have also found an egg or 2 so they may be reproducing right there. I know i have killed young ones on this tree already.
