I thought maybe you'd like to see what's going on in our little suburban garden…….
The last week has seen me rearranging, weeding, harvesting, and such.
We've been pulling up beets & carrots from the garden. Those purple carrots have bright orange centers and are the most beautiful carrot I've even seen. We love them.
We've had grasshoppers and some sort of caterpillar snacking on our chard & beet greens. I'm hoping we've mostly gotten rid of them. We've been plucking and squishing daily. One thing I noticed is that nothing bothered with the beet greens next to the cilantro patch, nor do they seem to love arugula like me. So I've tucked some cilantro and arugula in the corners of most of the beds in hopes of deterring the hungry little visitors.
New plants are going in and seedlings are sprouting up. I love wandering out there after a thunderstorm to check on everything. The contrast of the dark damp soil and new green sprouts make me smile. It's taken time… but I'm slowly loving this humble little suburban garden of ours. Having little ones squeal with handful of homegrown carrots they unearth fills my heart right up. They are so proud of everything they bring to the table.
What's going on in your garden?
