Out of control actually.
It should be noted that I started all of these, with the exception of the raspberry, with seeds. Seeds from the dollar aisle at Target. Impressive right?
Up front there is basil. An insane amount of basil. It is basically a basil tree. If you need basil just give me a shout.
Oh and my garden is a good example of why you should investigate what the hell you are doing beforehand. Apparently you aren’t supposed to plant raspberries and tomatoes close together. Oops. Oh well.
The right side of the garden used to be cucumbers, watermelons, and cantaloupe. I did get quite a few cucumbers (learned something new: apparently in extreme heat cucumbers do not turn dark green. Hell they barely turn green at all.) and one cantaloupe before the plague set in.
Yes, we had a plague. It was unfreaking real. Grasshoppers the size of a car tire. I’d go out there to water and a grasshopper would jump out- nearly pissed myself on numerous occasions.
Now I’m battling caterpillars. Every day I check my tomatoes and pull off at least 10 caterpillars- little bastards are eating my tomatoes!
I’m planning on putting in some fall stuff soon. Hopefully I won’t be feeding the insect population of southwest Georgia this time.
