Catching Up

Now that we've returned home, there is soooooo much to do. Just being gone for 2 has really put us behind. The garden is a mess! I planted turnips in the early spring, so they are almost ready to pick. I did pick a few. The beans needed weeded(well to be honest everything needs weeded). Now today, I'm going to tie the tomatoes up again. They are growing so much.

The zucchini is still there. I have resisted the temptation to pick it. But, I don't know how much more I can stand. Good thing there are more than one zucchini growing right now. Or is that worse, more temptation.

The beans are just about ready to bloom. The bugs are getting at them though. Is 7 Dust considered organic? If not, what's the best thing to use?

Now to the corn, it's growing, but, something has snipped the tops off. The very top of the corn is gone. Yes, I thought of the deer. Thinking maybe they finally found it. But, there are no deer prints in the garden. As muddy as it is, there would be prints. The only prints that are in the corn is Luke's, our St. Bernard. I really don't think he's eating it. But, you never know.

Well instead of blogging, I should be getting my work done.

Until later....

Oh, I know what you mean about the weeds! With the rain we've been getting, they've really taken off, haven't they?!

Sevin dust is not organic. Neither am I, so I use it. And it doesn't seem to be doing a thing for cabbage worms.

You probably already know this by now, but it sounds like coons are getting into your corn. They break off the top, bending it down, looking for ears. They took out about a 3rd of our corn (and it had just started tasseling) before I gave up and ran an electric wire around the top of my garden fence. I hate coons.
