Hello gardening friends….here is an update on my garden…
Pictured are a few pots of cow peas and beans. The sticks are in place to deter cats and the ever-digging squirrels in my backyard. I typically use old chopsticks, bamboo skewers, twigs or plastic utensils placed on top or in the soil.
The Shasta Daisies are blooming!!!
My old trusty potting table and chair…..
More cow peas coming up (purple hull)…can you tell I love cow peas LOL?
A few tomatoes beckoning to become fried green tomatoes…alas I must resist the temptation for now.
I am pleased to report the root aphids are under control. I disposed of 3 squash and 3 beans plants and the soil around them. For now, that small area is isolated until the beneficial nematodes I added are incorporated. There are no other signs of the bugs in the garden, but I will continue to be vigilant.
How are things going in your garden? I would love to hear from you.
