Thought I better post a photo of what is probably the nicest planting of broccoli we have grown here in years. Healthy, clean, and consistent. Now I just wait for the explosion of aphids that share my enthusiasm for healthy crops of broccoli. It seems like the aphid pressure has been increasing every year in the valley and though we have established a fairly effective trifecta of treatments including a microbial fungus and the application of over 1/2 million lady every year, these little %$@#%$s seem to eventually get the better of us. The aphid loves this warm dry weather as well and they can hide like nobodies business, especially in the broccoli and cauliflower as well as the undersides of the kales. Please wish us well as the fight is definitely on.
