I've been bad about posting recently, but wanting to share a quick garden update! Things are starting to grow like crazy. I harvested my first squash this past weekend, which was pretty exciting.
|Garden #1. Squash, zucchini, peppers, eggplants, tomatoes and cucumbers.|
|Tomatillas! This is one I started inside from seed. I can't believe how big it has gotten!|
|Also super excited to see how much my tomatoes have grown. I also started these inside from seed so that makes it even more fun to watch grow.|
|Tomatoes will be ready to harvest soon|
And now we come to the sad part of my garden update. My squash seems to have been invaded by squash borers :( These are nasty little suckers that kill your squash. A number of my squash plants have died, and some look to be on their way out soon. The thing that is really tricky is that they get into the stem of the plant, but you can't tell until they have already damaged it and the plant is starting to die.
|Rough looking squash that I planted too close together.|
|Patty pan squash, my favorite!|
|Yellow crookneck squash.|
|Onions, peppers and brussel sprouts|
|Thai chile peppers ready to be harvested.|
That's all for now. We're supposed to get a bunch of rain this week, so hopefully it will help my garden grow even more! If anyone has any organic suggestions about dealing with the squash bugs, let me know!
