I have loads of strawberries, but the slugs seem to get to them before I do. I ate 3 this year from the garden. The slugs got the rest. I'd love to have tons of fruit in the summer. I just have to figure out how to get it to grow, and not let the bugs eat all of it.

Sluggo for the garden--srsly, it works!

Whiteflies are attracted to yellow. Put some yellow sticky tape or sticky traps to attract them as well as other annoying pests. Celyn, did you buy your stuff from a greenhouse? Here's one of my favorite links about these lil' buggers:

I still can't stop thinking about what I want to do for next season. I STILL have arugula and salad mix growing, but I don't think that will happen much longer. I'm a little relieved I didn't get the PDX job because I have MAD plans for an edible yard. I want to inspire all my neighbors to grow their own food and show them that it can be done in an attractive way.
