I did a native soil test today (thanks for asking RevJLB)... high ph, medium nitrogen, high phosphorous, low potash. Will have to run a few more tests with the native soil alone and with my potting mix mixture to confirm results and take appropriate action. Rigged up a solar powered pump and filter for the pool in case I feel the need to jump in again.
The lady bugs were too little too late for the bean plants. Seems that in the last 24 hours, the plants were totally infested. Picked off the last beans then chopped out the plants and stuck them in the burn pit. Had to cut back the squash plants quit a bit too. They might have to go next. Another thunderstorm just missed me this afternoon.... 75,99,69, .51,B, .23
LATE NIGHT UPDATE: Another storm passed through from 10 to 11 and gave me another .32". First storm was .19"
