I think it’s been raining now for about the last week and a half. At first it was kind of nice but now, it’s getting a little depressing. Why can’t it just rain at night while we are all sleeping? Think how much more we could all get done outside in our gardens. Seriously.
Mr. Brown Slug decided to slime his way over to the cucumber starts and eat them all. I hope he know this means war and that I will be going out there later today and salting his slimy little arse to death.
I’m not into pesticides, but salt, heck ya. Bring.It.On.
I don’t know about you, but I am having a heck of a time growing broccoli this year. Last year I was able to harvest a nice sized basket of the little green trees, but this year? No such luck. Boooo!
Check out the green beans. They look like little soldiers standing tall.
I do believe it’s time to harvest the radishes! This will be our first harvest from the square foot garden. I’m excited to keep track of how much food we can produce this year from a 4×8 raised garden bed.
And take a look at our red leafed lettuce. Isn’t she lovely? Award winning for sure.
The sugar snap peas vines are covered with tiny white flowers. It won’t be long now until stir-fry is on the menu. How are your peas doing? Do they have any flowers yet?
And last but no least, Mr. Gnome Guy.Poor thing, he’s been getting soaked all week outside in the rain. It’s a good thing he’s a hardy little bugger. This being our first square foot garden, I think everything is looking pretty good.
I must say though, I am pretty surprised at how all the plants are getting along with each other. So far, so good.
