Just after the area was rotary hoed - 2011
I go around and knock the green shield beetles off the Cleome plants into a bucket of water
Planted Cleome to attract green shield beetles away from other plants.
Sweet corn and peanuts. Grew less peanuts this year, last year they were not that successful, too dry maybe
Pumpkins and maize. Grew less pumpkins this year last year we had too many
Garlic was growing good
Pumpkins and peanuts harvested.
Two months later the pumpkins were climbing over the corn. Some heritage beans in the foreground.
In November pumpkins were well established and mulched
Had broad beans, garlic , broccoli growing in the winter. Concentrated on covering the whole garden with mulch.
