With the massive amounts of irrigating we were doing and the periodic downpours of rain we’ve been having, we are now dealing with an unbelievable growth of weeds. We’ve been using a lay down bed weeder to help us accomplish the task of weeding, making it much quicker and more efficient, saving our backs, hips and knees from many hours of bending, kneeling and crawling which we would have otherwise been doing. Today we discovered our peppers are suffering from an infestation of pepper weevils. We planted more peppers this year than usual so hopefully we will still have a healthy harvest. Finally, we’ve harvested one of our favorite crops of the season, sandia or watermelon, little “Sugar Babies”, averaging 5 lbs. each and so refreshing during this hot time of year.
