You guessed it, friends. No menu plan today (but click here for ideas). Today I'm showing you what's growing in the garden. It looks a little different than it did 2 weeks ago.
So the orange arrows point to nasturtiums, pink are zinnias, yellow are marigold, and red is the watermelon.
Our strawberry patch is organic, but maybe not for long. If we do use a chemical pesticide, I want to make sure it's safe for bees, which might be a tall order. Anyway, for now, I'm just picking them off by hand and feeding them to the chickens. I don't know if the plants will have enough leaves left to store enough energy to come back up next year. It would be disappointing if they don't return, but it would be ok. That would give me a chance to both break the pest cycle, and move the strawberries to a more convenient location.
