What's with all the ?

The UC Master Gardener Program of Mariposa County provides useful information.

The grasshopper population increases in early summer. Warm conditions and drying of the water bodies and grasses trigger their egg hatching.

We have these grasshopper populations yearly, but the number is much less. These are most likely Melanoplus grasshoppers (they can have multiple species).

Grasshoppers lay eggs in the fall, then begin to hatch in the spring and continue for a while. They like to lay eggs on grasses, ditches, alfalfa fields, etc.; when soil temperature goes up, they hatch and become nymphs and adults.

Homeowners should close their doors or use screens to keep them out and get advice from pest control professionals.

For agricultural field managers, contact pest control advisors (PCAs), assess the damage, and decide whether or not to treat it.

It's not too late to grow for Fall.

Our UC Master Gardeners of Santa Clara County offer tips.

Mini pumpkins take 90-100 days from seed to harvest. To save space in your garden, they can be grown up on a trellis or other support.
Depending on the variety, other pumpkins generally take 90-120 days to mature after seeds are planted.

Pumpkins are ripe when they are fully colored (some are blue, white, or striped, so check your seed packet), have a hard rind, and have a woody stem.

They are not drought tolerant, so give them plenty of water, as you would for all your vegetables.

If you aren’t growing mini ones on trellises, plan for plenty of space for your vines. You also don’t want to walk through them because they have scratchy leaves and stems.

Loren Oki, professor emeritus of Cooperative Extension, led many research projects that advanced the green industry, including landscapes, nurseries, and floriculture.

“I come from a nursery family,” Oki explained. “My grandfather started Oki Nursery in the early 1900s.”

The Oki family played an instrumental role in the technological development for nurseries in general. Oki Nursery, which was located in Sacramento, worked closely with IBM and was the first to use a computerized system in the industry.
