I am having problems with dying plants and aphids...so, I am ashamed to say I sprayed with Sevin Dust...I couldn't take it anymore!!! I want some okra from these plants I have been growing so long...and now it looks like flowers are about to open, while, concurrently the plants are having the life sucked out of them. How sick is this??? I can't handle it. So, I sprayed. I am spraying again in the morning too, because I can see some of them are still living. So, tomorrow I am fertilizing them also. I moved the buckets onto the concrete so no additional water from the sprinklers will hit them. I want to control the water more. It has been raining a lot too, so hopefully that will slow up a bit. God, please let my okra plants be fruitful!!!!!
----P.S. I ammended this post because I had written in here I thought the ants were trying to eat the aphids, and this was incorrect. Silly me.
