Everything looks lovely! We aren't having Japanese Beetles this year but they were swarming around in northern Indiana when I was there a couple of weeks ago. They were eating all of the trees in sons yard. They are awful.

Not a lot, but they're HOT!  Even through my gloves I felt the warmth!  We don't eat them, I just use them as a seasoning.  Fresh from the garden.  There's more coming on, this is only the first batch.

98 today with heat index 108...that spells miserable!  I wash clothes and hang them out one day at a time.  House dresses are a must, until I leave the house.  Hubby checked garden this morning on his way to work and everything seems to be doing fine just watering every other day.  Dusting with the baby powder seems to be keeping insects at bay.  I'm thinking that maybe using baking soda with some peppermint and lavender essential oil might work and be cheaper?

Your plants are doing very well for being in buckets. I had a bucket garden a few years ago and it is so hot here that everything just dried up and died. :( (even with a shade cloth to protect from direct sunlight)
