Has Anyone Ever Used Beneficial Nematodes?

I am currently having issues with white worms inside my Zucchini squash. I need to save my squash or else I know it will end up dying. I am considering using Beneficial Nematodes in my garden.



This is what I found out about them:



In a moist, dark environment Beneficial Nematodes (Steinernema feltiae) kill almost all pests. Therefore, they are ideally suited to combat insects in and on the soil and those that bore into wood, trees and shrubs. These microscopic, worm-like… Continue

HOMEMADE ORGANIC PESTICIDES

Do you ever wish that you could make your own organic pesticides? Well, here is your organic pesticide cookbook! You will find many solutions and concoctions in this article that can help you keep the bugs out of your garden. Yes, you could use those nasty pesticides that you see in your local hardware, but why when homemade organic choices can be much cheaper and easier to use? If you are like many gardeners today, you want no harmful chemicals anywhere near your plants. Try some of these… Continue

Feisty Little Boogers!

Is it just me or am I the only gardener who has a battle with the infamous little gymnasts called Squirrels? Haha! Thanks to the help from my wonderful hunters, the dogs. If it wasn't for them I would probably be missing more fruits than I have already had stolen. I know all creatures have to do what they can to survive, but with as much birdseed I put out for the local birds, I would think they would have had their fill. They have managed to take my two beautiful pears and were even brave… Continue

HI Crystal, thanks for invite. I'm sitting here looking at our teaming winter rain thinking how lovely it would be to be in the summer growing season. My chickens would rather be ducks at the moment they look so bedraggled. I'm planning on planting garlic over the next week to take advantage of the solstice energy. We have just entered Matariki time here in NZ. This is the Moari New Year and is marked by the rising of the Pleiades, or Matariki, star cluster at dawn. Look forward to hearing from you.

Me again! I've just looked up the okra I grew this time. It is Okra Cee Gwa Long Ridge, otherwise called Ridge Gourd or Angled Luffa. I grew it for Chinese friends who live above their shop and have no garden. Didn't get a good result. One started up a tree and then stopped. The other was in the little hot house but planted too late. Oh, well..
We're off to England on Monday and will be away 'til 3rd September . Will try to get on computers of friends and family as we go. We only have three things to worry about - getting lost/robbed/flu! That just about covers it.

It is lettuce, but it's in our garden...not in pots. Kaden grows all of his veggies in pots and does very well...he has even grown corn in pots!

Hi Crystal
Thanks for the invitation
My garden at the moment is still in the planning stage.
My biggest pests however are my two dogs who just love playing in the compost.

Hi Crystal,

Love to join you. My garden is is cold and damp (middle of winter in Tasmania). I can only imagine how good those cantaloupe can taste and smell. My 'pests' are possums and wallabies and my mischievious ponies!

I would love to be your friend! I've been looking at your garden photos, too. The Okra must look beautiful when it is in flower. I grew some a few years ago but not sure what to do with them but the flowers were magnificent. The ones I grew this year were more like cucumber plants. I guess there's more than one type. My biggest pests are the blackbird and thrush, the next biggest diggers in the world. First prize goes to the three 'houdini' chooks!
