March Week 3

The past week has been full of moving plants into larger containers, moving stuff around and making sure the lettuce doesn’t get too hot — we are in the 80’s this week folks! We managed a small harvest of greens:

Salad from assorted lettuce, Green Onion, Cilantro, Moroccan Mint, Curled Leaf Parsley, Dill and Radish (I wanted to see how big they were).

In the garden these seedlings were finally given more room to grow:

Look at the roots of this German Chamomile!

Here are some Pests that have become attached to one of the Potted Calendula plants:

They seem to like the stalks that have dead flower heads the best. Are they trying to tell me I need to deadhead my beauties? Do you know what they are?

Thanks for joining us this week! Go to Daphne’s Dandelions to see other Harvests, Gardens and Plants!

    Not sure about the pests without getting a really close up look at them. So many things like to suck the life juice out of plants… could be a number of potential pests.

    They look like aphids to me, and are behaving like aphids.
