Rainy day. A perfect opportunity to catch up on some paperwork, reading and blogging.
In short, what was once a boring patch of grass turned into a jungle.
As the garden is in it’s peak performance of the season and in constant need to trim its rambunctious energy it is also in a very vulnerable stage, as the heat and humidity of the summer mean perfect conditions for all kinds of pests and diseases. I have been considering myself quite lucky thus far, avoiding bugs on my potatoes and other crops, but as it turns out, no gardener should ever put down her defences.
The enemies arrived as if they had an event scheduled on Facebook….
So as we are enjoying our veggies it turns out there are also some uninvited guests at the table, who are devouring crops just as happily.
The question is: how do you ask them to leave without harming the plants or us with chemicals??
I have learned a lot growing my own food, but it looks like it is just a beginning. One thing is certain – one can never be bored working on a project like this.
