O- Oregano. Perennial, grows easily, divide every 3 to 5 years, and it is supposed to help repel cabbage moths so good to plant broccoli and cabbage near it (marjoram is the same family and works the same). Easy to dry as well

J - Japanese beetles. Since they go after quite a few different plants in my yard, I'm hoping to find some good organic solutions for dealing with them besides knocking them into soapy water and drowning them.

(regarding bringing herbs inside - my Mom does but I never have. Not really a good place for them plus I harvest and dry enough from the annual and perennial ones to last me through the winter - through several winters actually - but may try it some day)

Eelworm - a nematode which pierce the roots of plants to feed or lay their eggs in, causing knots to form. By incorporating lots of organic matter in the soil, it encourages beneficial fungi or other nematodes which will feed on the bad, parasitic nematodes

Zucchini - no matter what the weather forecast may be for the year, Farmer's Almanac always says "looks like it's going to be a good year for zucchini!" Now if we can only figure out what to do with it all, as by the end of summer, all our neighbors hide when they see us coming by with still more zucchini!

Ash- wood ash can be used in place of potash, as long as it is not from treated wood. It provides potassium (K) which is needed promotes fruit and vegetable formation, strengthens the plant tissues, and is essential for photosynthesis

Z- Zinc. One of the most important trace minerals. Can often be lacking in alkaline soils. Chemical fertilizers can also bind zinc in otherwise healthy soils. Soils with a high content of organic matter generally will have a sufficient amount of available zinc (another reason to garden organically). Manure is the best organic fertilizer to use to maintain proper zinc levels in the garden soil.
