Ground Cherry(?)

I have been invaded by what I'm told are ground cherries. They look like potato plants with yellow flowers under the leaves. The fruit is in a pouch that look like a paper lantern. There is a pit or seed in the middle-kind of looks like a tomatillo. Where did they come from? How can I get rid of them? When I try to pull them up; the roots are so deep I cannot get them all- it breaks of. Short of using Roundup; what can I do to rid my vegetable garden of them? They are taking over.

powdery mildew

With the cold, rainy weather for the last 4 days, my sugar snap and garden peas have developed powdery mildew. The older vines are the worst. I have pulled them and put them in the trash. The younger vines have a much lighter case. Are the peas still edible? I hate to waste all the good food and time and energy. Anything I can do to the soil in the area that will mitigate any damage?

spit on weeds?

I have noticed in the last few years that a week or so before I am invaded by rose chafers, I find a lot of tall weeds in the field behind my house have what looks like a bit of spit or soap suds around the middle of tall weeds. A friend heard it may be spiders; I have noticed that a week later, the chafers show up en masse. Is this coincidence or are we both wrong?
