Sprayed Neem Oil over all the vegetables. This product stops aphids and white flies, which I seem to have an abundance of in the garden. Turns out I should be spraying every 2 weeks and it's been over a month. I have some catching up to do. More sticky yellow patches to catch the little buggers.

Meanwhile, the powdery mildew on the zucchini leaves is going crazy. There is so much more today. I cut out a lot of the infected leaves, but there are still so many more. What to do????

  1. hi Linda, i just stumbled across your blog from the WEAD site. thanks for the tip about neem oil. i love the idea of the alternative currency for the hungry artist, a great exchange. at the moment we have snow peas and broad beans and cabbage growing, southern hemisphere winter veges, silverbeet is still powering and this arvo i think i might try and assemble a spinach and fetta pie! im an artist as well and it is great to see you doing this work, best wishes cal
