Here are a few photo's...
Winter Squash. I had planted these into the ground holding my breath. I half expected the slugs to find them before they got this big.
Tomato plant and green beans.
Mediterranean (Israeli) melons
Friend or foe? I checked my Texas Bug book and couldn't identify.
The melon vines are spreading like wildfire. We pulled weeds today and found a snake. Tomorrow, I'll catch the plants early and spray them with a combination of Dawn dishsoap and Cayenne pepper. So far so good, on keeping the aphids under control. I have a lot of space around my bell peppers and hope to do some companion planting beside them soon.
