As you know we planted a frugal garden this year! This is our second year and we are really enjoying watching our garden grow. As you can see we are having lots of growth! Our corn is coming on and since this is our first year for corn that is exciting!
We did have a set back with our carrots which was disappointing…something or should I say “some-bunny” ate them…they were there one day and gone the next so I would think a visitor or ten came through and enjoyed them. We have replanted but haven’t seen anything come up yet. We are thinking of planting round 3.
As you know we are gardening organically this year. We are not using pesticides and we are using natural methods to keep unwanted “pests” away. I read to use one drop of dish detergent in a spray bottle filled with water to keep unwanted pests and bugs away so I am going to try that on my peppers who look like they need a little help. I did spray an organic spray after the bunnies had a feast of my carrots.
So far we are working hard to weed and water when necessary, which has only been a couple of times since we planted! We have blooming squash, cucumbers lots and lots of green tomatoes coming on! We also have two big hills of potatoes that are growing nicely. I think we are most anxious about our peppers and corn though since those are new to us :-) Do you have a garden? I am excited to hear how your garden is progressing too!
