OK, so I took this selfie in the garden Saturday and figured for all those new to the blog here I am! Pardon the ragged appearance, I was working in the garden (after mowing) on an absolutely beautiful World Naked Gardening Day, but more on that later...
We actually have our first harvest of the season!
I gathered a bunch of herbs, here I cut oregano, chives and flat leaf parsley.
Of course there were veggies now. We have our first jalapeños of the season and look, cucumbers! Those were so fun to harvest, it was like looking for Easter eggs, they are hidden really well!
There were also a few eggplants coming in, they should be ready for harvest this coming weekend.
But all was not great...these were on the cucumber vines. Boo! I picked them all off by hand (a tedious job but I got them all) and dispatched them. I checked the rest of the garden and didn't see them anywhere else but I'm sure they'll be back.
What are they and of course any good solutions for taking care of them?
Ah, but I know the question everyone is still wondering after Saturday's post...was I naked on World Naked Gardening Day?
Well it WAS a beautiful day in the middle of country with only cows around...
