Five Things

The kale has brought an abundance of aphids to the garden. The lady bugs are chopping down on them and leaving babies behind, like this little guy hanging out on a lettuce leaf.

This is Rosie, we got her last weekend. Read about her and her friends over at Backyard Ramblings.

I am just a bit excited about this new growing area. The trellis is two sections of cattle guard I picked up from Tractor Supply. The rocks are from the pond I removed in the front yard. I used an old area rug in the middle to help suppress weeds. I’ll eventually lay down some mulch. Growing in here are beans, scallop squash, and cucumbers.

I added a small grouping of corn next to the wheat. This photo was taken a few weeks ago as the corn is several inches taller now.

    I also meant to say that we had a horrible aphid invasion when we had kale last year. I don’t even know if we harvested much because it was in such poor shape.
