Ok, I'm trying not to say the words that are going through my head, at least not publicly. So I'll just ask this.
What Is This!
Who ate my beans!?
Gone- bit clean through. No footprints, the bed is fenced and wrapped in fishing line. No sign of bugs. Nothing could reach these, they are in the middle of the garden. Birds? They sit on the cattle fencing. Maybe?
Just when I think I'm getting ahead.
Not all is bad. The little digger got a couple of peppers but there are signs of new growth where the bitten stems meet the main stem. We'll see.
The squash is doing well but I found some eggs beneath the leaves. Baaad eggs! I took those leaves off and squashed those eggs flat and then squished them Big Time!
Tomatoes are doing well, both in this bed and the little side garden. I'm also getting some eggplants, little tiny purples ones- so cute!
I have next week off so I'm going to find some farmers' markets. I always try to take my birthday week off because it's halfway through the year, a nice break. I can get up late (that would be about 6:30 for me) and drink lots of coffee before I putter around the garden. We're having company in July so my husband is trying to finish some projects that never quite got done. I'll post about those when it's finished.
In the meantime- what's up with the garden? Who ate my beans?
How do I protect beans? They will grow through netting, do I get mesh?
