GARDEN DIARIES

It is a cold miserable day here. It made it hard to get out and work in the garden, but the more I looked out upon the ever encroaching weeds, the more I couldn't stand it. In the end, some of those weeds won. Clover. I've just decided to let the clover stay. There's just too much of it. So I pulled the ones closest to the plants and left the rest. The biggest problem we have now is the something that's attacking my cauliflower and broccoli.

I found the culprits: little green caterpillars. The exact same color as the leaves. I plucked and smooshed as many as I could find and I hope I got them all. I think it's time to break out the soap spray I used last year for bugs.

Despite the weeds and the bugs, things are thriving. I have buds on my radishes and I harvested a basket of lettuce and kale.

The squash is getting big and the plants I planted last week seem to be taking to their new home.

And to finish this day, we will have potato soup with fresh kale. It's a perfect day for potato soup.
