I love that within a few months, our garden grew from this
The tomatoes are growing aplenty and look gorgeous and juicy from afar, but on some of the plants the bottom side of each tomato awards you a nice surprise.
The squash plants have been attacked by stink bugs, who have decided to nest and lay eggs all over our leaves.
Soooo, while I absolutely love to watch everything grow and see the literal fruits of our labor ripen, I am getting so frustrated! We went on a bug killing spree last weekend, and while the Sevin spray seemed to steer the hoard of earwigs away from the plants, apparently we didn't do a good enough job of killing the stink bugs individually as we found them. We had to cut off several of our squash leaves since they were literally covered in eggs but apparently we didn't get them all because after about a week of no disturbance, we have discovered fresh eggs again. Any suggestions? I keep squishing, but they keep a'comin back for more!
I am happy to admit that my thumb is the farthest possible from green in color, but I do want to learn to grow a successful and yummy garden. Please comment with any and all tips you may have!
On the bright side, my little Trav sure loves picking his cherry tomatoes, red or green.
How are your gardens doing?
