With all the rain we've received my garden has grown by leaps and bounds! It looks more like a jungle than a garden. :)
It is green! At this point I think there is more grass and weeds then my plants but that's ok. I've managed to keep them from choking my plants out.
My poor cherry tomato plant may not make a full recovery. It was attacked by these guys...
This is the Tomato Hornworm. Really it is a caterpillar and it feasts on tomato plants. I pulled 6 off the cherry tomato plant and they did that damage pretty much over night. Thankfully I haven't found many more but I have learned to keep an eye out for these guys. They blend Very well. The chickens will eat them but even they can't see them on the plant!
My bush green bean plants have done well. I have 3 rows and I've harvested a handful about every other day. I think next year I will plant about twice as much so I can really can a good amount. I haven't quite had enough to can this year. We eat them too quickly. :)
I planted squash, zucchini, watermelon, cantaloupe, and cucumbers too. But it started to rain while I was taking pictures. Go Figure. I hope to feature each veggie or fruit and share some ways we use them, store them, and save seeds as I learn.
No calf yet either. Her due date was VERY wrong. We are anxiously waiting to see her little one.
How's your garden growing this year??
