Garden Dirt

The garden is winding down for the summer season and we are making plans for fall crops. 3 factors contributed to the quick decline of our produce- heat, deer, and Lucas. The boy couldn't resist picking green tomatoes! This is the first year deer have been a problem and they have been a big one! Blackberry bushes are stripped and okra eaten at the first sign of pods. All in all, it has been a good season. The onions and squash are plentiful. Potatoes and carrots will provide enough to last through fall. Peppers are still producing and Brent planted another row of beans. Tomatoes have many blooms but are ripening slowly.

How funny that Lucas picks green tomatoes! Have you had problems with squash bugs?
