Eco-friendly Control of Bean Beetles
Holes in the leaves of bean plants mean insects have moved in to share the harvest.  Don’t fret there are some easy ways to manage these pests.
Several insects can feed on bean plants and their pods. The bean leaf beetle, Mexican bean beetle and spotted cucumber beetle are the most common.
The bean beetle is ¼ inch long, yellow-green to red with four black dots on its back. High populations can devastate a planting. Cover plantings with floating row covers to keep the insects off. Firmly secure the edges to prevent the beetles from crawling underneath.
The Mexican bean beetle is a bit larger and can be yellow or coppery brown with 16 black dots. The immature stage, larvae, is orange or yellow, fuzzy and rather hump-backed. Remove and destroy any of the insects and their bright yellow eggs that you find.
A thorough clean up in the fall will reduce future problems.
A bit more information: The spotted cucumber beetle can also be found nibbling on your bean plants. It is long and narrow, yellowish green with black spots. Remove insects as found or use one of the more eco-friendly products like Neem, if needed.

Start New Perennials from Root Cuttings
Expand your perennial plant collection or share a family heirloom with friends and family. Root cuttings of butterfly weed, bleeding heart and oriental poppies to start new plants to share.
 
Take root cuttings of most fleshy rooted perennials in late winter or early spring before growth begins. Wait until after the bleeding heart has stopped flowering and oriental poppies go dormant to make these root cuttings.
 
Start by raking the soil away from the base of the plant so that several roots are exposed.
 
Use a sharp knife to remove several roots. Cover the remaining roots and water the plant.
 
Cut the roots into 2 to 3 inch segments. Lay them on a well-drained potting mix, moist sand or other rooting media. Cover the roots and keep the rooting media moist but not wet.
 
New growth should appear in several weeks.  Young plants can be moved into the garden or container in a sheltered location.
 
A bit more information:  Division is the easiest way to start new plants. Simply use a sharp spade to dig the plant and lift it out of the ground. Use a sharp linoleum knife, drywall saw or two  garden forks to cut the original plant into several small pieces.

Medinilla for Indoor and Outdoor Gardens
Add a bit of the tropics to your patio or indoor garden with a Medinilla Plant.
 
This Philippine native is a relative newcomer to the North American garden scene. It produces exotic pink flowers several times a year. The colorful buds slowly open and expand into a spike covered with pink flowers and bracts.
 
Grow your plant in bright light indoors or indirect sunlight outside. Water thoroughly whenever the soil just starts to dry. You’ll water less often in the winter.
 
Pour off any excess water that collects in the saucer or use a gravel tray to elevate the pot above the water. This will save you time and improve the growing conditions by adding humidity around your plant. 
 
Only fertilize actively growing Medinilla plants. Use a dilute solution of a flowering plant fertilizer whenever your plant needs a nutrient boost.
 
Keep plants indoors when outside temperatures are below 54 degrees F (12 degrees C).
 
A bit more information: Remove faded flowers as your Medinilla finishes blooming. Fertilize regularly as the plant produces new growth. Once stems are at least 10 inches long you can start the reblooming process. Move your plant to a cooler location with temperatures about 64 degrees F (17 degrees C). Continue to provide bright light throughout the reblooming process.  Move back to its original location once the buds are at least 1 inch long. For more information visit http://www.medinilla.ca/plant-care.html

Eco-friendly Control of Asparagus Beetles
You wait all winter for your asparagus harvest and so do the common and spotted asparagus beetles.
 
These common pests of asparagus feed on the emerging stems causing browning, scarring and crooking of the stems.  Later in the season the larvae of the common asparagus beetle feed on the foliage.  Severe defoliation can weaken the plants.
 
Both beetles are about ¼ inch long and oval in shape. The common asparagus beetle is bluish black with cream-colored spots while the spotted asparagus beetle is reddish orange with black spots.
 
Start watching for these pests as soon as the asparagus peeks through the ground.  Remove and drop the beetles and their worm-like larvae into a container of soapy water.  Smash any of the eggs as soon as they are discovered.
 
Avoid chemicals as these also kill the parasitic wasp that helps control these pests. A little time controlling these insects means a bigger and better tasting harvest.
 
A bit more information: Control the weeds and you will also increase your harvest. Regular removal and mulching will keep annual weeds under control. Quackgrass and other perennial weeds require more persistence to remove these from the garden.

Cilantro
Add some flavor and potassium to your family meals with a bit of homegrown cilantro.
 
Plant transplants or sow seeds directly in the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Cilantro grows best in full sun, cool temperatures and well-drained soil. Gardeners in cooler climates can sow seeds every 3 to 4 weeks throughout the summer for continual harvest. Those with hotter summers will have the best results growing cilantro in the cooler temperatures of spring, fall and even winter in some areas.
 
Harvest the leaves back to the ground when they are at least 4 to 6 inches long. Only harvest a third of the plant to allow it to keep producing. After several harvests or as temperatures warm the plant will set seed. After the white flowers fade, green seeds appear and eventually turn brown. Harvest and use the seeds, they are the herb known as coriander, or allow them to drop to the ground and sprout new plants. 
 
A bit more information: The 2006 All American Selection Award Winner Delfino Cilantro has fine ferny foliage. It branches freely, producing more leaves to harvest and enjoy. Plus, it tends to form flowers and seeds later than other varieties.

Pick a Bit of Purslane for Your Salad
Put down the weeder and break out the harvest basket. The weed you are trying to kill may be a tasty addition to your salads and sandwiches.

Purslane is an aggressive annual weed that can be found anywhere from cultivated gardens to vacant patches of earth. It grows flat on the ground with thick succulent leaves similar to a jade plant. It spreads by stem pieces and seeds that can last for up to 40 years in the soil. You’ll see more of this weed during hot dry summers.
 
Harvest young plants and use the leaves fresh in salads and on sandwiches. Stir-fry, puree or steam the leaves and use it as a spinach substitute. Just don’t overcook as it gets a bit slimy.
 
Be sure to wash the plants before eating and only harvest plants growing in areas where pesticides, including weed killers, have not been used.
 
If you become a fan of purslane, consider purchasing the seed of varieties bred for better flavor.
 
A bit more information:  If you decide to control this weed, pull the plant before it goes to seed. Then mulch the soil with a one to two inch layer of shredded leaves or evergreen needles to help prevent the seeds from sprouting.

Plant Bee-Friendly Plants for National Pollinator Week (June 16-23)
Celebrate National Pollinator week June 16th to 23rd by adding a few new bee-friendly plants to your garden. Both our native bees and the honeybees are important to our gardens and food supply.
 
Borage is an annual herb that grows 24 to 36 inches tall and is topped with beautiful blue flowers. It can be used for seasoning meat, the flowers can be candied and the leaves are steeped to make tea.

Calendula also known as pot marigold thrives in full sun and cooler temperatures. The bees will enjoy the nectar and you can harvest the white, yellow or orange flowers for cooking in soups and stews.
 
Goldenrod is not the cause of hayfever, but is a favorite of bees and other beneficial insects. The bright yellow flowers combine nicely with asters for a beautiful fall display.
 
And put away the pesticides. These products can kill the good insects as effectively as the bad guys.
 
A bit more information: Further help the bees by providing the raw materials they need for nesting. Leave a few small brush piles, dried grasses, reeds and deadwood for the wild bees. Or invest in one of the bee houses or beneficial nesting boxes like those available at Gardener’s Supply.

Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Looking for the perfect gift for dad? Consider the gift of time.
 
Help him enjoy gardening more or reduce time spent gardening, so he has more time to fish, golf or just relax under a shade tree.
 
Look for tools that make dad’s job easier and fun. Convert an old snow sled into a nifty plant sled. Add a longer secure rope so he can drag heavy items across the lawn.  Or maybe that old wagon can be painted and find a second life as a means of moving watering cans and bags of mulch around the landscape.
 
Buy a stand-alone tool caddy or one that wraps around a five gallon bucket. Fill it with a hand pruner, Dee Weeder, pair of gloves or any of those small gardening tools that seem to disappear when needed.
 
And add a garden journal where he can not only record his garden successes, but also his secrets to share.
 
And don’t forget to offer your time to help him with weeding, mowing or whatever garden chore he least enjoys.
 
A bit more information: Here are a few other projects that will help dad be organized and save time in the garden. Purchase a plastic container with a lid for all of his seeds. Organize seeds alphabetically, label with dividers and take inventory. This way he can store seeds in the fridge to maintain their viability, quickly find seeds he needs and reference the inventory when seed shopping at the garden center or from a catalogue.

Caring for Bromeliads

Looking for an easy indoor flowering plant? Try adding bromeliads to your collection.

These long blooming beauties require minimal care. Many bromeliads are epiphytes, naturally growing on trees and gathering nutrients and water from the environment, not by parasitizing the plants they live upon. You will find bromeliads at garden centers and florists mounted on boards, rocks or growing in well-drained potting or orchid mix.
 
Water the plants often enough to prevent the roots from drying out. Those bromeliads with a rosette of leaves that form a vase or tank absorb the water more efficiently through their leaves. So be sure to keep water in the leaf “tank” to keep these thriving.
 
Fertilize actively growing plants during the growing season with a dilute solution of flowering houseplant fertilizer. Once the flowers fade, the parent plant begins to decline. Don’t worry - new plants will soon appear.
 
A bit more information:  Divide and repot the young plants that form as the parent plant declines. Once these plants reach maturity they can be forced to flower. Place a piece of an apple and the plant in a sealed plastic bag for three days. Remove and wait for flowers to form.

Contrast Colors and Texture to Add Pizzazz to the Garden

Is your garden looking a bit drab? It’s time to liven things up with a few new plant combinations.  

Pair plants with opposite features to create a focal point and add a bit of pizazz to the landscape.
 
Start with color. Pairing plants with colors on the opposite side of the color wheel is sure to grab your attention. Blue salvia and yellow coreopsis, purple heliotrope and orange blackberry lily are just a few examples.
 
Look for opportunities to add some interesting textures. The fine leaves of ornamental grass are great against the bolder leaves of Canna. Or, mix Russian sage with your coneflowers.
 
And look for interesting and contrasting forms. Plant tall spiky speedwells next to round flowered zinnias or set a squatty round birdbath in front of a stand of tall hollyhocks.  These contrasting combinations emphasize each partner’s unique features.
 
A bit more information: The same design strategy works in the shade.  Combine the yellow daisy flowers of Leopard’s bane with the spiky blue flowers of Camassia. Or try mixing Japanese Forest grass (Hakonechloa) in front of a big blue leafed hosta
.

National Gardening Exercise Day
It’s National Gardening Exercise Day, so get out and workout in your garden today!
 
Whether you have a large landscape, small city lot or garden in containers, indoors or out, you will burn calories, lower your blood pressure and improve your mood through gardening.
 
Plus, you will be nurturing beautiful flowers for bouquets and fresh fruits and vegetables for your dinner table.
 
No garden? Then plant one. Consider planting a pot of your favorite grilling herbs to grow right next to the grill. Or plant a pot or patch of black and blue salvia, cuphea, also known as cigar plant, and fuchsias to bring hummingbirds to your garden.  And don’t overlook the benefit of growing tomatoes and peppers in a garden or container. They provide lots of vitamins and antioxidants – a perfect complement to your garden workout.
 
Make sure to follow a sensible routine, just like your workout at the gym.
 
A bit more information: Warm up with slow gentle motions. Then ramp up your garden workout with a few lunges as you weed. And be sure to finish gardening with some gentle stretches and slower movement.

Grow Your Own Chocolate – Chocolate Mint, That Is!
Add some chocolate to your diet and garden without adding all those calories.

Chocolate mint is an easy to grow plant with a strong minty fragrance and flavor topped off with a hint of chocolate. It makes the perfect garnish for desserts and as an ingredient in tea, ice cream, mojitos and anything chocolate.
 
Like most mints this is an aggressive plant. Grow it in a pot on your patio, deck or porch to keep it accessible and contained. Place your pot of mint in full sun or partial shade. It prefers cool moist soils, but as most gardeners have discovered, it tolerates a variety of conditions.
 
Harvest leaves and sprigs of your chocolate mint as needed throughout the season.  Don’t be timid - the more you harvest the more new stems and leaves will be produced. This fresh new growth has the best flavor.
 
Store sprigs of fresh mint in a glass of water or dry and wrap in plastic in the refrigerator.
 
A bit more information: Make larger harvests for drying and freezing just as the flowers begin to appear. You’ll get the greatest concentration of flavor. Larger harvests will not weaken the plant. Watch for fresh new growth and continue to harvest as needed.

Celebrate Rose Month – Eat Your Roses
The from-the-garden-to-the-table movement is not just about fruits and vegetables. Edible flowers like roses can provide beauty in a vase or on your dinner plate.
 
Rose petals are edible fresh in a salad, seeped in tea or cooked into jam and bakery.  The flavor varies with the variety and weather conditions, but you may taste a hint of strawberries or green apples when munching on a rose petal.
 
Harvest petals from recently opened flowers. Remove the individual petals and cut out the often bitter portion at the base. Spritz the petals with water to wash off bugs and dust. Pat dry then use fresh or dry for future use.
 
Make sure no pesticides have been applied to or near the plants and that they have not been exposed to roadside pollutants.
 
Leave some flowers on the plant to enjoy and develop into fruit that is decorative, edible and high in Vitamin C.
 
A bit more information: Harvest rose hips when they are fully colored, and better yet, after a light frost when they are sweetest. Use to make tea, candy, sauce, jams and jellies.

So What's This, Twitterature?
Stand-up comic Kumail Nanjiani visited Conan the other night and played a game called "Tweet or Literature." The concept is based on the Library of Congress' recent revelation that it is cataloguing tweets the way it catalogues the greatest writings of our age, and every age before ours. Think you'd do well with a game like that? Check it out then...

Siri Gets Feisty
Aaron Paul's all over this one, and it's suddenly all the rage. The Breaking Bad star tweeted about something that seems to push Apple's digital assistant over the virtual brink. "What is zero divided by zero?" Technically, there's no answer, because you can't divide by zero, because division by zero is undefined. When you come right down to it, Siri's answer - while exhibiting a silicon chip on her shoulder - makes far more sense.   Ask Siri "what is zero divided by zero?" RIGHT. NOW. — Aaron Paul (@aaronpaul_8) June 30, 2015 Siri's response: “Imagine that you have zero cookies, and you split them evenly among zero friends. How many cookies does each person get? See? It doesn’t make sense... And Cookie Monster is sad that there are no cookies... And you are sad that you have no friends.” If you want to try it yourself,it apparently only works on iOS8...

"It's Centered on Love"
On MSNBC the other night, George Takei - best known as Ensign Sulu on the original Star Trek TV series - visited The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss marriage equality. George is a champion for gay rights, and Lawrence wanted to get his reaction to Donald Trump's comments about believing in "traditional marriage." George, who was on a season of The Apprentice, talked about having lunch with Donald one day, and asking him how a guy who'd been divorced three times could call his marriages "traditional." It's a pretty interesting interview, but I have to admit, I was tempted to say "Take it to Warp Three, Mister Sulu" about 20 times...

What to Do with that Leftover Watermelon
Tomorrow's the 4th of July. There will be cookouts and gatherings, and lots of people bringing lots of food to other people's houses. Often, some people bring the same thing.

Hammertime, SketchShe Style
You've seen the girls of SketchShe before. It started a few months ago with their in-car rendition of "Bohemian Rhapsody." They lip-synched and acted out the song while driving along, sort of like in Wayne's World, but better. Now they're taking on MC Hammer, and doing it in a golf cart. And on a golf course. And it's pretty funny. Certainly up to SketchShe standards. Check it out.     (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); 'U Can't Touch This!'

The Return of Rocky
Just when you thought Rocky Balboa was down for the count, he's back. This time, he's playing the role of the crusty old trainer - the part Mickey played in Rocky's upbringing. And Rocky's trainee? The son of Apollo Creed. That's what Creed is all about, and it's coming to movie screens this fall. This preview was released the other day, and I have to admit, it looks pretty good.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); This fall, your legacy is more than a name.

What Say You on The Donald, Jon Stewart?
Okay, this one's a few days old, but well worth watching. On The Daily Show the other night, Jon Stewart was beside himself on the news that Donald Trump hadn't yet officially filed his paperwork to seal the deal on his presidential candidacy. Jon's been hoping and praying for Trump's candidacy, just to make his last six weeks on the show palatable... And now... Well, see how Jon reacted...

Freddie Not Impressed by Kanye
Yesterday, we took a look at the abomination others called Kanye West's cover of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." We weren't the only ones who were thinking that. Check out this amazing mashup of Freddie Mercury "reacting" to Kanye's performance. And then Kanye "reacting" to Freddie's performance. If it doesn't make you laugh, there is no hope.   And by the way, to those who might think that Freddie actually had something to say - as I saw a few times on Facebook yesterday - please keep in mind that Freddie passed away in 1991.

Alex Trebek Goes All Fresh Prince
On Jeopardy! the other night, the category was TV. Dollar value: $800. Clue: "In the theme to this 90's sitcom, "I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, & I yelled to the cabbie, 'Yo, Homes, smell ya later!'" Correct answer, and sort of a no-brainer: "What is 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?'" What made it memorable, and in my mind, just a little creepy, was the way Alex Trebek read the clue. I'm sure he was going for a rap style, trying to imitate Will Smith, but it sounded more like a cross between Kelsey Grammer's Frasier and Orson Welles. Plus, he pronounced "later" as "lay-terr," not "lay-tah." No self-respecting rapper would do that, Alex!

Tackle Made by Number 99, JJ Watt!
Sunday night in Milwaukee, an overzealous fan crashed the stage during a Zac Brown concert. He was dancing a little too close to the band, having a great old time, and never saw what hit him and leveled him on the stage. What did hit him? Houston Texans' defensive end JJ Watt. All 6'5" and 300 pounds of him absolutely flattened the guy. When he was able to collect his senses, JJ unceremoniously escorted him offstage, to the wild cheers of the audience. I wonder if that's going to get JJ any training camp points with his coach?(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Nobody messes with Zac Brown Band Posted by JJ Watt on Monday, June 29, 2015

"If It Happens Fast, It's Almost Lethal"
Chris Farley became famous superfast, thanks to his tenure on Saturday Night Live. And it seems like he left the planet just as quickly - some say a victim of his fame. He was only 33 when he died of a drug overdose in 1997. Now there's a new documentary about the comic actor's life, featuring a bunch of his contemporaries and workmates, talking about him, what his sudden fame did to him, and what he's left behind.

From the Mouths of Babes
We're talking babes as in young folks here, so please try to follow along. The phrase means that young children often speak with great wisdom. So who better to consult about the Supreme Court's decision last week about marriage equality, right?

Ain't No Strings on Me
This may be one of the weirdest movie mash-ups of all time. Perhaps proof positive that some people have too much time on their hands? Take a classic like The Wizard of Oz, and mix it up with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and what do you get? Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man, of course. It's pretty creepy and pretty funny all at the same time.
