Garden update

Gardening is an interesting hobby because it feels like it’s a constant battle of “too dry”, “too wet”, “attracting too many insects” and now I’m battling leaf mold (not sure of the official term) on my zucchini. I’m trying a home-made mixture of water, dish soap, and baking soda that I going online to see if it will help with the leaf mold. (UPDATE: it worked GREAT! Got rid of all the mold in less than a week). What would really help is if it would stopping raining ALL THE TIME! Totally defeats the purpose of my soaker hose :(.

Overall, my zucchini (front) and beans (back), are doing really well!

The radishes (right) are doing well (this is my third batch of radishes already!!), my cucumber (center/left) is growing slow and steady, spinach (far left) is hit and miss, some didn’t germinate, most are growing slow, and one is growing pretty fast

My tomato (the one surviving one) is growing slowly. Hope it grows a bit before it gets too hot.

The peppers are doing really well, they are small, but were the longest to maturity of anything I planted (well, second to red onions, but they’re boring above ground, so I didn’t picture them), so I’m not concerned about the slow growth.

I have a bunch of green onions sprouting, just waiting for then to thicken up a bit. Should be soon!

J and I got married in August 2010, and purchased our first house in May 2012. I decided to start a blog so I can ramble on about all the thing I find interesting. How is this different than any other home/life blog? It's probably not - but I just like to talk :). I'm not the best at updating my blogs, but I'll try to update at least once a week, or whenever anything interesting happens :).
