Got some new critters in the garden this week, but first lets look at the colorful harvest for the week:
Top Left Plate: Julia Childs’, Serrano and Cayenne Peppers
Top Right Plate: Garden Peach, Box Car Willie and Yellow Oleron
Bottom Right: Paul Robeson
Bottom Left: Hillbilly and Blondkopfchen
Center: Mystery Tomato (Not Hillbilly) Yellow Perfection, Chocolate Pepper
Now would you like to meed the new addition to the garden?
Aphids!!!!!!! Easily noticed due to an increase of ant activity on and around the plants. Nasty Buggers. Affected plants include: All pepper plants, Peppermint, Outside Watermelons and some Chamomile in the front yard. Plants have been sprayed down and will likely need another couple of applications to be fully protected.
Stay tuned to see how we deal with the Aphids and on figuring out what the Mystery Tomato is. In the meantime, head over to Daphne’s Dandelions to see harvests and gardens from around the world!
