Latest growth from our organic garden



Here's some updates from our garden.
We have tomatoes like crazy (see canning post below) and cucumbers too (I'll be making pickles this week). We had to pull up a few plants due to vine borers (lost our yellow squash plant and 1/2 of our zucchini plant. The pumpkin plants were attacked, too but seem to be making a comeback. The aluminum foil you see in the pumpkin picture is to help prevent the vine borers from returning. Next year I will plant radishes around them. That is another organic "cure".
Check out our funny carrot!! I don't know what happened there! We have no luck with carrots for some reason.
Our kale, broccoli, sunflowers, basil, lettuce and everything else is growing strong. I just planted another round of spinach because we are eating tons of that lately.
