About a week ago I got all the seed in our garden plot. Paul said it was too rocky, and that nothing would grow, and that it was MY garden (isn't it funny how once he decided nothing would grow, it became MY garden instead of ours?) Against all odds, WE have a few things popping tender heads out. And now I'm worried, because we have these guys all over the place:
I just know they're going to go eat OUR garden (assuming stuff continues to grow). So my green thumbed friends, what should I do? I don't like the idea of chemical sprays, but if there is no other option I'm willing. Any advice you have is welcome!
Here's what WE'VE got coming up (for now):
Beans - they have all sprouted and seem to be doing well-
Beets - one of my favorites (you can see how rocky it is!) Not sure if things below the earth like beets will survive the rockiness, but it'll be interesting to find out -
Rhubarb. Funny story on the rhubarb. I used to have loads of rhubarb every summer. Until Paul ran over it with the lawn mower. Then no more rhubarb. I tried to plant more, but it didn't take. Well, this year it took!
Squash or zucchini - I was too lazy to check my map to see which -
WE are still waiting to see if green peppers, turnips, eggplant, tomatoes, and tomatillos will grow. Oh, and one lone seed potato that we found under the fridge (lol).
In other news, Buddha hen got her bath and then a week later went right into brooding!
We're letting her sit out some eggs, and hopefully we'll have some little peeps in about 3 weeks:
