My deck garden seems to be recovering from the soapfest a couple weeks ago. I noticed aphids on my hot pepper plants and read around and found that a little ivory soap and water sprayed on the leaves would be good. I added a little neem oil to the mix, too, but I think I put too much soap in the bottle. Many of the leaves got spotty and brown. I was afraid I would lose everything! But it seems to be coming back OK. Here are some pictures from last week (6/7)
It all looks even better today. I think the soap scare is over. Even the okra has some more leaves on it and I thought it was completely lost before I even sprayed soap on everything else.
I was going to type more, but nobody’s reading this anyway, so I’m off to the Red Cross. Blood supplies are low and it’s been a very long time since I donated blood.
