Happy Dog Mom's Day to All of Our Pup Friends!
Through bad weather, a cold spell and bugs, our garden is looking pretty good. We bought some red pepper, garlic juice to spray on the garden to keep it organic, we're trying to stay away from pesticides. I think it's working, we've seen a drastic decrease in the amount of cucumber beetles. They don't like it and the word needs to get around. Last weekend we smashed ~30 of those beetles in a single visit, now after a few days of applying the solution it's not uncommon to go out and see 0-1 of them around.
We had our first harvest last night, several sprigs of mint for mojitos, it wasn't much but it was something and tasted great!
If we don't get anything else out of the garden, those may be the most expensive mojitos ever made :)
Everything is still growing pretty well, I still don't have a clue how or when to harvest the stuff that grows below ground (onion, carrots and esp the potatoes) but I figure I'll research that soon.
How much longer am I going to have to wait to eat something else from the garden?
Introducing... our first tomato!
In order to ward off any new bugs we introduced a scare-Domo to the garden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domo_(NHK))
