This morning was very dreary, cloudy and damp from last night's rain. I picked off another half dozen Japanese beetles – drowned them in soapy water. I guess the garlic didn't work. Allegedly the smell of the corpses deters more from coming. We'll see…
I'm glad for the rain (I don't have to water so often), but it's not good for my fungus infected strawberry plants. I got a copper spray for them. It will, of course, only stop the fungus from spreading. The infected spots will remain infected. I'll remove them when I get a chance.
Look at how well the mints (bottom center) are doing! It might be time for a mojito party!
And the lemon thyme (at the top) is spilling out of the planter. No idea what I'm going to do with all of it.
I got my first harvest of green beans. And it looks like many more are on the way!
