We finally got a good rain here with a 2″ + on Saturday night. It totally amazes me what a difference rain water can make in my garden. I can water it all I want with my hose, but it just doesn’t compare to the real deal. I can’t believe how much my plants shot up after the rain!
Here’s what’s going in my garden right now!
And here are some challenges we’re facing:
I’ve seen a few of these in my garden – eating my green bean plants. They are all over around the perimeter of our property, though. I’m definitely worried about these nasty creatures. I don’t know how to deal with them if they do become the problem I’m sure they will become.
I’ve got the dreaded cucumber beetle again. I fought them hard last year and lost. I’m not sure how I will attack them this year. I’ll be making more homemade traps – even though it didn’t work last year. I’ve got diatomaceous earth on order and in the mean time, I’m smashing every blasted one I can get my hands on. If you have any tips for dealing with cucumber beetles, I’d sure love to hear.
How’s your garden growing?
