This past week the weather has been a gardener’s dream! We have had three days of rain and lots of sunshine too! Just look at how my garden has grown!
The squash plants have doubled in size. All my plants are covered in corn meal to try to control those Colorado potato beetles.
The peppers are growing!
My green beans have finally got big enough to show up in a picture!
Farmer Rick’s peas are not doing so great but he resowed them this weekend. Maybe the second time will be a charm.
Of course the prize of the garden………..
Tomatoes! Yes. Tomatoes are the reason we garden! They are covered in protective corn meal! I hope it keeps those dreadful Colorado Potato Beetles off my tomatoes! That brings us to what I have been picking in the garden today!
I picked another jar of beetles! So far I haven’t made a dent in controlling the population of these dreaded pests! The battle rages on! Tomorrow I will spray the potatoes with spinosad to defeat these little devils!
