Here are my setups. My main raised bed is right next to the house. The orchard and in ground garden is about 300 yards away. The raised beds always do better, you can barely see the tomatoes and squash around the edges of the in ground garden. I planted everything at the same time, the tomatoes in the raised beds are at least 3x as big.

Thank you sir. Everything would really take off if the wind would die down. We have had what seems like a full month of 30+ mph wind every single day here. Feel like I'm out in West Texas lol

Saw on the news the other day that this is the windiest spring since like 1996. Your garden is on point. Great job

Not much happening with tomatoes, have 3 or 4 small green beefsteak. Buy I think all of their energy is going to growing. They're bushy.

Yep. I know it kills the pollinators, but it got rid of the bugs that were starting to eat on my plants.I actually have not seen very many bugs going for the pollen on any blooms prior.
Any suggestions for something else that will work? I think you told me something last year but i can't remember. hammer

My problem here in Mason is the darned deer! I have to cover everything with chicken wire. If I don't, the deer will eat it all, right down to the dirt line. Worst I've ever seen, and if the drought doesn't break soon and give them some forage, it's going to be very long and frustrating and unproductive growing season!

They were rather large, they kind of looked liked stink bugs, the plants were looking slightly wilted and the leaves had paled, that'd when I notice the bugs on the.

Plants are looking healthier now and blooming.
I know some people use ladybugs for pest control, but I think these are little large for them to handle confused2

I've never had much problem with deer, however the local rabbit's have been getting bold.
Added an extra hot wire down low. Stopped that. grin

I use Castile Liquid Soap in a pump sprayer at 4 tablespoons per gallon. Or less. You could figure a ratio from that for a smaller spray bottle, but I would not mix it any stronger. I use Eucalyptus scented because it was cheaper at the time, but I think most people use Peppermint for a repelling quality. Other dishwashing soaps will work too, but you want something without other additives. I also pour in an unmeasured dash of vegetable oil to help it stick. Stink bugs breath through their skin. The soapy water mix will coat and drown them. Fatty acids in the soap also paralyze and kill aphids. I do know I was able to repel cats from marking pots by my front approach due the strong eucalyptus smell. It or one of the other scented ones might make your plants undesirable to deer at least temporarily. It would take a trial run. It might attract them for all I know.

It's coming alive. Adding some rain water collection too. Not so much for gardening though.

Nice setup for the water collection. Here is mine, it works great collects a ton of water off the roof.
