Not off to a good start here at my place
Finally got one end tilled so Carolyn can get here vegies in.
No sooner did I get done and the dam Colorado beetles are already crawling out of the ground and I never have had potatoes in that end of the garden before!!

Going to start anew in a dffferent spot about a block away that Les has had corn the last few years.
Didn't even get enough spuds last year for seed so bought all new this year. Pontiac, Red, & Yukon Gold.
Will see what happens.

Try some granular Spectracide on the garden area. It took care of everything on my lawn including grub worms. I use it every spring and fall around the house to keep out insects.
Cheapest place around here to get it is at Lowes Home Improvement. Around $12 for a 20 lb. bag. I usually use three bags. I also use the liquid concentrate for plants.

Got the bean poles set up and planted this morning.
Got 1/2 of the sweet corn done yesterday, about 210 hills in the 1st planting.
The same in the 2nd planting in 2 weeks.
Using FS seed, Ambrosia that replaces the Peaches and Cream which they discontinued.

Spuds are in as well, last evening, about 212 hills, 4 different kinds, Yucon Gold, Kennebeck, Pontiac and Russett Burbank.
