Everything is In!Posted: May 17, 2012
It is a beautiful day here in Maryland! The garden is growing, and I finally got everything planted (minus a few replacement heads of lettuce after harvest).
Everything seems to be doing well except my snap peas and a couple of tomato plants that were sampled by a chipmunk or some other type of rodent ( we are pretending it could never be a rat…). They seem to be the only trouble we have had with nibbling, which is good because I am trying to keep the garden as organic as possible. I am actually more worried that my nibbler problems will be of the two legged variety come July. As of today no one seems to want to steal kale and lettuce but tomatoes and peppers are a little bit more appealing.
The latest garden additions are pepper plants, some herbs and marigolds.
I love sweet red peppers!
Cheery marigold! They are supposed to keep pests away and my mom will be proud of me for getting a plant that is not food.
Both are hanging out in my crisper waiting to be eaten tonight for dinner! My tomatoes are still very small but growing. It is almost time to harvest some spinach too! Green Monster smoothies and salads for all!
