We have been having so much fun with our garden. I can honestly say I am going to have a raised bed each summer from now on. Our only issue are these nasty little caterpillars eating up my kale. See their dirty handiwork! Poor kale! Adam and Lily pick them off and throw them in the pond for the fish to eat, but I think I have to resort to some type of spray. I should take my veggie-loving pal’s advice and get some Bacillus thuringiensis to put on it. I tried Home Depot but couldn’t find it! Sorry, kale. Hang in there!
Our squashes are blooming so nicely. We love to see the big, orange blossoms coloring the garden. I also have a mystery melon. It is blooming nicely – can’t wait to see what it produces! Courtesy of my compost pile – I think maybe it is a honeydew melon.
We had our regular summer turtle come by this weekend for a visit. I tried not to shudder visibly in front of Lily as she held it. Ahh, to be a child again! My old grownup self does NOT pick up turtles.
Here is the full garden bed. The tomatoes that grew from my compost are doing better than the ones I started inside!
My English peas are sprouting. Excited to harvest some!
I think this is a cherry tomato that came out of my compost as well. Yay for blooms!
Are you growing anything this year?
