I don't think I ever posted about planting our garden back in April! Shame on me. Well, to catch you up, we have strawberries, tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes planted.
Here are our strawberries.
These are doing surprisingly well for the amount of heat and sun they have to endure. We have a ton of new green strawberries sprouting up every day. However, as soon as they start to turn red, someone else decides to eat it right off the vine.
This little bug...
Our strawberries are covered with these little guys every morning! I don't want to spray pesticides on our fruit, but I'm also not sure I want to supply a strawberry buffet to the roley poleys. Does anyone know of any "green" ways to deter these little guys?
Our tomatoes are growing bigger every day!
I can't wait for them to turn red.
And our cherry tomato plants are really starting to perk up. We weren't sure if they were going to make it. They seemed kind of droopy and unhappy, but last week, they decided to pull through and we have our first cherry tomato growing.
This morning, we checked on our garden and the cherry tomato was bright red! Our first fruit of the season. Yay!
We are having so much fun with our little planter garden. I am already excited for next year to come so I can plant bell peppers, peas, green beans, and other fun things!
Do you guys have a garden? What are you growing this year? What does well and what doesn't do so well?
