In the Garden: Cucumber blossoms, and foreign invaders

Monday, July 14, 2008

OK, so let's start with the good news...cucumber blossoms! These little golden heralds appeared in the garden this very morning. Soon I'll finally have cuke slices to go with my overflowing supply of lettuce.

And the bad news... japanese beetles. They've been spotted all around the vegetable garden, the trees, and the flowers. They've damaged some of the peas and lettuce already, but I'm not sure when I can spray for them; a number of bees and are sure to get axed in the process too. Will the blossoms still get pollinated?I don't even know what these crazy beetles are doing... mating? battling? circus act?
