Garden Update

Blogger is giving me trouble with picture uploading, so I apologize that some of these are sideways. But I wanted to document my garden progress. I cannot stay out of the garden and am loving every minute of it. It's great exercise digging, weeding, and generally taking care of everything. It is still a work in progress which I kind of hope never changes. I cannot wait to eat fresh veggies, and it looks like we're getting close

Here's the whole plot 3 weeks ago then again about a week ago
Sugar Snap Peas 2 weeks ago then last night (tilt your head to the right for this next one):
Jalapenos - see the two tiny peppers? The larger one is about 1 1/2 inches long so far: Cucumbers - we have about 12 blossoms and tiny cukes. Yum!
Okay, now tilt your head to the left to see my creepers (pumpkin in the back, watermelon in the middle, then squash - both yellow and zucchini - in the front). The top is 3 weeks ago, the bottom is now:Last - banana peppers. Can you see all of the ants on the blossoms? Ugh! I tried a home remedy last night, and they are all completely gone this morning. Mix 1/2 cup veg. oil, 1 1/2 cups water, and 2 tsp liquid dish soap in a squirt bottle, and spray the plant 1-2 times per week.

Hey Alicia! The garden looks awesome! One of these years we're going to do the same thing! Probably not this year, but sometime! How are the coffee cozies coming along?

You are always amazing me with your projects! Mainly because it stresses me out to even think about going through all of that stuff and then being able to make it something worth looking at and using.
