Quick Garden Update...

Okay, so there are some updates from the garden, but I don't have pictures. Sorry!

  • My tomatoes have bacterial speck... not much I can do about it I don't think. (That I have found in my research-- anyone else have experience with it?)
  • Tomatoes also have blossom end rot... got to put some eggshells out there and water those sad plants!  It hasn't rained in weeks! 
  • The eggplant is still (somehow, I don't know!) alive, producing very small eggplants that keep turning red-- Chris got a red china.  Haven't eaten them yet, though. 
  • The zucchini is getting into gear.  We have five from our garden and three from our CSA in our fridge right now!
  • We tried planting potatoes this year... but we planted them very late! and only seven or eight plants came up.  Oh, well, we'll get on that better next year!
  • We DUG OUR GARLIC!  Hooray!  Now I need it to rain sometime in the future so I can plant something there! 
  • We have baby acorn squash growing!  I love how the squashes start out so small and cute.  I can't wait to have delicious squash all winter. 
  • We are making a cinnamon spray as per my MIL suggested.  We have yet to spray it.  Will keep you posted.  
  • I picked one beet so far this year and we put it in a salad. Yum. 
  • The brussels sprouts are getting all eaten up and sad.  I just want them to grow!  I am hoping some cinnamon spray might get them through. We'll see.
Maybe I will update this with some pictures tomorrow.  We went swimming today.  It was hot.  But I DO need to get out in the garden, give everything a good watering and also put some eggshells around the tomatoes.

Good night for now!


  1. You have me intrigued about your cinnamon spray. Is that for pest control?

    Thanks for linking up to Frugal Gardening!
