Before I left for Pittsburgh Nick and I created an organic pesticide for our garden. We seem to have a bug problem so we thought we’d remedy sooner rather than later. You can find the organic pesticide recipe here.
We chopped up some garlic, onion, and jalapeno peppers, and then add them to the blender with water and vinegar (grossed out yet?!).
Either way, what do you think of our garden?! I’ll be honest, Nick has been doing most of the work. He was born to garden! These pictures are actually over a week old. I am so excited to see it when I get back. It’s like being excited to see how big your son or daughter has gotten after a long vacation (ok, it’s a little different, but kind of similar! Plants grow a lot faster than kids, so 5 days probably means major growth).
Here is our kale, which Nick tasted and then spit right out (he’s not a kale lover, so it’s all for me).
Have you seen our fence? We thought we’d block the animals by building a fence. I’ll take credit for this one. We found the equipment at Lowe’s and it took about an hour to erect this beauty. So far it’s working well.
