Square Foot Garden: Three Weeks

Lots of growth this week. Out of all the seeds that Ron planted, we only have one seed that has not broken the soil.

We are also experiencing our first bug issue.

We are talking about this little guy and his friends. The cucumber beetle. It seems that he enjoys eating nearly everything that Ron planted. He has applied an environmentally friendly spray of hot peppers. Fingers crossed that this works. If anyone has tips on how to control these in Texas we would welcome the help.

Your garden is doing really well!

We don't have bugs like that here, I'm afraid, so we've no advice on how to treat them!

Snails and slugs are the big problems here but Murray is great at collecting and disposing of both!!

take care

Maybe you'll have to replant the seeds that didn't come up?
Your garden is looking fabulous! Now to take care of that critter who wants to eat the fruit before you guys do. Not fair!

Love ya lots

Hi dearest friends,

What a wonderful garden. It looks so green and pretty. We miss you guys so much but Mommy is still feeling bad and now she's got a bad cold.We missed going to Buda this weekend becuase Mommy just wasn't up to it. It's awful getting old.

Great looking garden! We had our first aspargus for dinner. It was so tasty. We haven't put any of our new veggie plants in the ground yet. The aspargus was finally ready for harvest on its 3 year cycle. The chives are back and doing well. Hopefully in the next few weeks it will be warm enough to plant again. We still haven't quite crossed the frost danger zone.

I have heard to use NEEM oil on fruit and veg garden pests.
