the herb garden is doing its thing, giving us loads of goodies…
the veggies are in the ground, and i have to wait a bit longer for them to get settled. this year’s veggies include:
- tomatoes…small cherry, and heirloom red
- peppers…sweet green and jalapeño
- lettuce…apparently, this is mostly for giving the earwigs something to munch on so they wont eat the rest of my plants? yeah that’s it. this is my second year trying lettuce and its going about the same as last time… >:\
the kids’ little corner of the garden has plants that they picked and planted for themselves 2 years ago: blueberries, strawberries and a rosebush. the roses are blooming well for the first time, and the strawberries have given fruit before, but the birds and critters have gotten to them first. and we have yet to hear a peep out of the blueberries.
mr.madeItSo jigged a little cage out of chicken wire and scrap wood a couple of weeks ago to try and protect that corner of the garden. the kids are so interested in how their plants are doing…
the gnome is on 24 hour guard. i will keep you posted.
