Jerusalem artichoke, (Helianthus tuberosus L.)
The flowers seem early.

Cucumber patch

 Getting some nice cow peas...

These brugs seem early too.

Drowning the kudzu bugs.

What do you plan, if anything, to do about kudzu bugs? I would not care if they would stay on wisteria and eat it up. They say when wisteria is gone, they will move to figs. I don't want the nasty things on my figs while I'm trying to gather them.

Sorry, I thought the bugs floating in the bucket of water was clear.
My kudzu bugs started out on the fava beans... As seen here.

They've moved on to the gonolobus / matalea, and also the cow peas... I am seeing them in the fig trees also.

If you hold one hand under the bugs and use the other to brush/shake them off, they drop into the first hand... then drop them in a bucket of water. They're hard-shelled critters, don't smush too easily. So... drown em.
