  1. A groundhog, a rabbit, 5 squirrels, a black snake, flea beetles, cut worms, imported cabbage loopers, squash bugs...and a partridge in a pear tree. All are growing FAT in my garden.

    2. A shot gun followed by a crockpot might solve a few of the problems and neem oil spray might work on the rest. I am getting a bit grumpy. I am the one who plowed, planted and hoed. Who do they think they are?

  2. Patsy, on the other side of the world it is winter and I have cabbages, cauliflowers, broccoli, bok choy, eggplant, silverbeet and a few other bits and pieces growing like tamarillos, avocados, oranges and mandarins.

    1. Nanna Chel, the cabbages,cauliflowers and broccoli are fall crops for us. Our climate is not suitable to growing avocados, oranges and mandarins.

  3. As of yesterday I have 2 green squash, 1 yellow, a few blooms on my acorn squash, a handful of strawberries and radishes lots and lots of radish. My son who lives next door, yup he didn't move far, has even more things coming up we just share what we have with all our neighbors. Am truly excited for the first baked acorn squash.

    1. tealady, how blessed you are to have your son living next door to you. It's so good that you can share your garden produce with each other.

  4. Your garden is way ahead of mine!
    I just got mine planted a couple of days ago....I usually plant in mid June, as we get gusty and high north winds earlier....and our growing season goes well into Oct. here in Ca.
    I love the cucumbers growing on the old wagon wheel....I have a few of those wheels that I might incorporate into my garden area....

    Your garden veggies look so yummy, I can almost taste them!

    1. Enid, we are in the early stages of harvesting and the fresh vegetables are delicious! Those wagon wheels make excellent things for cucumbers to grow up on!

  5. I have strawberries, lettuce, broccoli, snow peas, thyme and oregano I am picking. I have used a couple bulbs of garlic - but it is really not ready yet. I have tomatoes on 4 plants, which is really early here in Eastern Washington. The pepper plants will go in this weekend. We were down to 36 degrees this week.

    1. Ouch! 36 degrees is cold! We're hitting the 95 - 100 degree temperature most days.

  6. Hi Patsy,
    My garden is about at the same stage as yours. It is the 1st garden I've put in that has actual tomatoes. Now, I'm fighting the blight and the bugs and hoping to get some red tomatoes soon. I've covered the top of my square, raised bed with tulle netting to keep out the birds. I have a chicken wire fence around it to keep out the bunnies, but there is NO way to keep away the bugs that want my produce. UGH I've been praying for my little veggies to make it.
    One plant that IS beginning to produce is my blueberry bush. That is covered in netting too. I hope to get enough to make a pie.
    I am trying to trellis my zucchini and cucumbers too. Has this worked well for you in the past? I only have one zucchini so far.
    Happy Sunday to you! Ellie

    1. Ellie, I've never tried trellising zucchini but have had great success trellising cucumbers. Those bugs can really be a 'pest' can't they!!!!
