Fig trees currently under attack by lantern fly nymphs. Suggestions? Trying neem oil...Pulled the figs out of their 41F hibernation room last weekend.
Last year was a crummy fig year - looks like they want to make up for it.
A ton of confused buds decided to become fruit.
More on the other trees too.
camera was totally confused about what i wanted a picture of.

Is that a kit? Like the efficient design, is that all dirt in there?My wife is handling this whole project. She laid all the brick, I just dug out the spot.
Plants and seeds are in zucchini has already sprouted.
We went with tomato and pepper plants. seeds for carrots, zucchini, various lettuce and cucumber. Also threw in some sunflower for a pop of color. View attachment 214795
It was an Eartheasy. Kit out of Canada 8x8 with deer net extension.Is that a kit? Like the efficient design, is that all dirt in there?
Are those plots 8x8 or 10x10? Looks like they get good sun. We put our garden on one side of the property and now after over 10 years trees are starting to shade some sections.View attachment 215078
Over the winter I rebuilt the one side with the gate on the left garden, actually put the posts in concrete so I can lean on it without fear of toppling it. Planted a few tomatoes really early, like April 15 and and they are doing well. Pretty standard tomatoes, this year, black Cherry, early girls, Bradley, Rutgers, sweet 100’s, pineapple something (the yellow with the red star pattern), German Johnson, San marzano, black Krim and a few others I am sure I forgot. Snap peas, green beans, eggplant, Japanese eggplant, a few types of cukes, Cubano peppers, red bell pepper and ofcourse cilantro, basil and parsley
Fine looking crowns. Do you harvest the broc leaves and stew like collards?Picked broccoli, 5 heads on the 3rd and the remaining 3 on the 4th. Cauliflower heads are coming on too.
