this was posted close to a year ago, did it work? I have just moved 1 1/2 years ago and having a terrible problem with flies. Last year, I could have sworn they were nesting in my house I had so many. I think I am going to try this.

Im am literlly going insain.Im in Florida.Im doing the organic no pesticide thing.But it seems like there should be one certain way to get rid of these demons.I just read an article that a woman planted lots of marigolds for bugs and the next day and every day after that they destryed them also.I thought marigolds were good to repel bugs as basil and geraniums and lemon grass,tansy which I have all and the critters Im am getting fed up.Which is the best method to get rid of all these?I found a row of little orange balls in a line on my desert rose plants.Is that from a moth?Laying its eggs Iam so mad I put alot of hard work in all these plants.I only have 2 container tomatoes with 6 tomatoes.I thought cool I did it.But I looked out today as I do 3 times a day and one tomatoe was cracked.Also Im a newbe how do I recieve anwser from my post?Emailemail@example.com thank you hope you can help me I have no one else but my computerKathi

Hi,Im new to this site and I love it.My name is Kathi and I have a ton of container plants.Desert roses,lots of Plumerias and 15 cuttings Im starting.I have every herb and sun impatients too long to list.Im worried oh and hot peppers and tomatoes.But the bugs are starting to eat my leaves.Ive done the soap and water.Have you ever heard of dr.Braders book on grocery store items to use in the garden?I was wondering if it is all true.My main question.Im a widow 53 yrs old and I am doing all this by myself its my life but I am getting a bit overwhelmed.This for that this bug stuff will kill this.So I went totally organic.I have 5 compost bins made from trash cans that now Im having a problem turning them to rotate because of my back.The water problem,I live in Florida yes we do also have water restrictions.Are those barrels expensive?????I wouldnt even know where to buy one.Do they sell them at home depot?Its just what I need but Im on a very restricted income since my husband died a year and half ago.I have been putting kitchen trash cans under my spouts for water but you know what that does mosquitos.Its bad enough I have to deal with fire ants and black ants dont need mosquitoes.Listerine has been taken care of that problem well sorry this was so long.But I dont have any friends here yet.Just moved here for my Mom and Dad from Sarasota and Im working on building up some garden friends.Thank you I hope to here from you soon with some anwsers that would be great,KLathi

I also had an over abundance of little green tomatoes (miniature Romas). I ended up making Green Tomato Jam - a sweet jam perfect for on top of toast, or added to home-made yogurt. Easy recipe, too.
Green Tomato Jam
3 cups green tomatoes chopped fine
1/2 cup lemon juice
7 1/2 cups sugar
2 Certo pectin in pouches
Cook tomatoes, lemon juice and sugar until rapidly boil. Add Certo. Return to full boil and boil hard 1 minute. Fill jars and process in water bath for 10 minutes

cfabshire: thank you. I was thinking the same thing and then I saw your comment. Hi Ellen! I haven’t yet read many other articles on this site, but I can appreciate that you may have been in a hurry to meet a deadline, or the flipside is the fact there are brilliant people in this world that are just not the best writers or spellers. I can’t knock it either way. Love that rhubarb! You must be located much farther north than I am, as my rhubarb has been in its full leafed out glory for some time now. (Well, I am reading your article a full 7 weeks after you posted it). I mangaged to remove the first few flower stalks, but got busy with other things and two more have not only flowered, but now the seeds are drying on the stem. One of these years I will have my act together and manage to keep up with all my gardening chores…someday.
Juan Boy: 05/25/2012, 2:59 PM
So what’s the secret? I havee 2 rhubarb plants, different locations, stalks are spindly, no red, well watered etc. The rest of the garden grows beautifully, Any suggestions?
cfabshire: 05/24/2012, 1:14 PM
It was difficult to read this article. The grammar is poor and words are missing. That is surprising for an editor-at-large.

I find gardeners to be a friendly and generous sort, you can always strike up conversation on their driveway. Small nurseries like yours are our general stores, and we like stopping by to buy or browse. If you garden you are saying yes to living and beauty, and good things are meant to be shared.
Thanks for sharing your patch.

Midge is a horrible pest to get rid of. You may want to wash Merit (imidicloprid) into the soil. Bayer packages it in a hose end sprayer these days. The important thing with Merit in the soil is to make sure it washes down into the root zone of the plant. This insecticide can get chemically bound up in the organic material in the soil, so it’s good to apply it just before a significant rain event. Then, when the tiny larvae suck the sap from the buds it will kill them and hopefully the cycle can be broken. Rose Midge are tiny little flies that are in the same family as ‘No-See-‘Ems’ on a sultry day at the seashore, only Rose Midge sucks rose sap instead of people sap. Continue your spray program, and best of luck. I hate these critters, too!

Please, please, please help me get rid of rose midge which has plagued my Fairy rose since I bought it. What product, and where is it available? I sprayed it every ten days from September to October last year in hopes of finally ridding the rose of this awful bug.

It’s so great to hear from you, dear friend! Our roses are enjoying this weather and so should we!! Breathe deep, and enjoy your time in the garden! ? Marci
