Garden Progress (with photos!)

My good camera died a slow, pathetic death.  The following are taken with my iPhone, so please bear with me!

 Snap Peas, with Kale in front that you can't quite see yet.

 Broccoli and Red Cabbage

 4 types of Summer Squash, Onions and Cauliflower.

 Spinach, Turnips, Kohlrabi, Red Cabbage, Radishes and Lettuce

 Carrots and more Radishes

 Impromptu Willow Trellis with Sweet Peas

 The Potato experiment!

 The new Herb Garden

And last but not least, what's left of my bush beans.

I discovered the little visitor that was decimating my beans was none other than the cutworm.  This is all that is left of the 80+ bean plants I had in here.  The survivors are now protected by some bottomless plastic cups, sunk about 2 inches into the soil.  I killed approximately 40 cutworms today, and although I'm sure I didn't get them all, this should solve the problem.  Fortunately, I have more little bean seedlings available, thanks to my Mom's garden, so all is not lost.


  1. Your garden looks great! Bummer about the beans, glad you figured it out & can get more. I'm down to just my iPhone for pics too it's driving me crazy. I've enjoyed reading your blog.

  2. Poor beans! Glad it was the cutworms and not a mouse. Your garden looks great - I like the willow pea trellis.

  3. You asked about eggplant on my blog - they need heat - don't do well except in a hoop tunnel or greenhouse. I grow Millionaire variety - they are small but do better here.


Hi guys! Due to spam, I am moderating, but I'll be as quick as I can!
