Harvest day went well. Skimpy berries, but otherwise well. I am hoping by next week, things will be well on their way and I don't have to fret about production until November! So far the cucumber beetles have been slow to show. I am not sure if the cool Spring, use of Neem, or good predator bugs is the reason, but it is nice not to be losing a battle against bugs and spending precious time spraying everyday. Now watch, they will show up. The Red Torpedo onions are getting huge. I hope they have sweet flavor at first. The red onions often do, and then get hotter and more oniony as the summer progresses. Need to pull and eat one soon.
