Garden Notes~June 19 2014

Joining in with Amanda over at Soulemama today to share what is going on in my garden (container garden).

I had heard that one squash plant is enough to provide more squash than you can use and it seems that my zucchini plants are starting to take over the container garden on the front deck. I do enjoy those pretty squash blossoms. I also have tomatoes, corn, strawberries, kale, watermelon, carrots, and all sorts of culinary herbs growing. Did I mention that this is my first serious garden that I am growing? I have dabbled in a few plants before, but they ended up dying due to neglect or in the case of last year a tree falling on them. Everything seems to be doing really well, I am still not sure about the corn in the container and I may have too many seeds in one container, but this first serious garden of mine is more of a learning experience and if nothing else, I am sure I will at least get some herbs out of it. One more garden component is the tick we found on the side of the house...yuck. It is that time of year, time to get the tick repellent on my skin. I have a spray that I bought at my local healthy co-op, but if anyone has an even more natural repellent, please let me know. What is growing in everyone else's garden?
Peace, Yasmin

  1. I haven't heard of a natural way to rid ticks...besides getting chickens or guineas :-) We have regular "tick checks" every day after we have been outside.
