Things are booming (no “L” in that word) in the garden. We’ve had several inches of rain over the past couple weeks, interspersed between bouts of temperatures north of 85 degrees. In fact, as I finish up this post and wait for pictures I took early this morning to upload, it’s raining again. Which saves on my water bill and the plants are all growing by leaps and bounds with the combination of moisture and heat. I am piling on dirt and straw on the potatoes daily, sometimes twice a day.
But still no bLooms on the tomatoes or peppers. In due time, I know…
Whatever is nibbling on the beans is continuing its nocturnal noshing. The beans are trying mightily to move past it and putting out new leaves, but I’m not sure if they can win this game. I’m tempted to try some commercial pest deterrent, but I hear it has a wretched odor and I don’t need to stink up the garden. Anyone have success with a less malodorous solution to keeping rabbits and/or turtles out of the garden?
