Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

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.imageTo 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.

Ugh.

  1. Bummer! My garden has gone to waste. I have 2 sections. One is all weeds and the other which I sowed full of seeds hasn’t had a single seed sprout. I’m guessing the birds at the seeds already. I guess I’ll just wait until spring until I do any more (it is winter here).

    • I did manage to get a few things before it went bad … that’s better than last year for me!
