Garden update June 3, 2011

I took some pictures this morning of the garden and  some of the little critters that have been hanging around.  My gardens look like jungles more than gardens but that is how I like it.  The hubs would prefer neat straight rows with no flowers in the veggie garden.  I told him when he grows a garden he can layout it out how ever he wants.... then he just walks away muttering under his breath that is pretty much how every gardening season starts and that is about all I hear about it until next season.  He does plant the potatoes so he gets to plant them how ever he wants (I'm not a total garden bully).

I harvested my garlic a little to early but I was worried they would start rotting in the ground with all the rain we got.  It hasn't rained one day since I harvested them.......go figure.

I have no clue what kind of eggs these are.

Squash bug eggs

All I can think of now when I see a squash bug is "I'M RICK JAMES!"  it's like that song that you can't get out of head once you start humming to it on the radio.  Thanks EG for putting that in my HEAD!

These are just a few of the visitors I have had in the garden so far,  I saw the first squash vine borer moth of the season so I will be on the look out for squash vine borer eggs now.   I have a couple of pest hunters for the garden, they might be old but moles, rabbits, squirrels, and maybe a cat or two don't last long in my garden.

Well that is about where I'm at in the garden.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

    Haha, you're welcome! Those eggs on the squash plant leaf....I haven't seen them before, either...

  2. EG,
    I found another leaf with those same eggs on them this morning, I have to find out what they are I'll let you know if I find out.

  3. eek to the critters, but sadly its part of growing your own veg - which are the real rewards :)

    I've enjoyed peeking in your garden and will sure be back to check out the progress.
