Garden Gab week 9….from my garden to my kitchen
I’m so excited. Last week’s baby squash is now a big, happy, ready to eat squash this week. My garden is now producing. It’s not much yet, but I know more is to come.
I did get the tomatoes moved out of pots and into the dirt this week, which has been good for 2 reasons.
- the pots kept blowing over and damaging the plants.
- I was watering the potted tomato plants two or three times a day to keep the plants happy, and now I don’t have to.
I did go to the organic gardening store and buy an insecticide, it has not killed all the bugs that munch on my garden, but it has deterred them a bit. There are fewer of the bugs, and fewer is better.
Two thoughts on using ANY insecticide…
- wear gloves, wash your hands after you use it (even if you wore gloves…wash your hands anyway)
- do NOT harvest anything from your garden the same day you use insecticide.
Here are my other garden pictures.
How is your garden growing this week?
