A Bad Week in the Garden
It has been a devastating week here at Fresh Veggies. I’m feeling a little more than discouraged.
The lettuce and tomato plants are covered in bugs, white flies, I believe. The lettuce was ready to harvest and I was totally grossed out by the bugs so WE DID NOT EAT IT. Bleck. No amount of washing was going to take that visual away from me. Gag.
I promptly busted out the insecticidal soap and sprayed like a maniac. As a matter of fact, I should probably go spray again to be sure. Bleck.
Then, there’s the matter of the sunflowers. Total loss. I blame the chipmunks. I blame the squirrels. I blame the bunnies. I blame them all. And, I am sad.To make matters worse, there is someone down the street from me who has no less than 100 sunflower plants happily growing in her front yard. I am beyond jealous.
And, I will just have vicariously enjoy her sunflowers because mine are dead.
