Today I took my chicken poo tea and gave everyone a shot of booster juice.  It’s the second application.  No schedule, just thought it was time.  Some things are kind of flagging so this might fix it.  My cukes are wilting, for one .  I think it might be a squash bug that loves cukes too.  sigh.  There aren’t any to find.  I only found 2 of the yellow and green striped 1/4″ guys, actually a girl and a guy.  They couldn’t be responsible for 3 plants drooping.  Let’s see what the tea does.

I noticed that the radishes were bolting so I pulled some of them.  I was intending to pull them all but stopped.  Look what I found:

radishes flowering

big sigh

radishes not fruiting

Addendum: Spoke to a friend, much more knowledgeable than I am, about the radish disaster. She says, “It’s been too warm. Radishes grow when it’s cool.” Oh. Maybe next year, I’ll get them in the ground when it’s first thawed, put plastic over the row to protect it from frost and maybe get something that can be eaten.
