Pests: Get out of my garden!

See that hole on the side? It's the second one in two days!

Stop, pests, stop! I don’t want to share with you! I want this cilantro for myself, and the tiny lettuce plants that you have been trying to dig up are mine too. I know you will continue to work your way into my garden throughout the summer, and I will have to fight with you to get to my tomatoes first. But can’t you just leave these tiny plants alone so they can have a chance to survive? I have grand plans for these herbs and greens, and I have invested time and money in them. So please, just leave my plants alone!

baby lettuce!

I planted some lettuce and spinach seeds a couple weeks back in oblong pots. Now they are about an inch tall — and battling for space! I thinned the plants a little bit, but more need to be pulled. I can’t wait to start having fresh lettuce everyday!


Those are green onions peeking out in the back. I just stuck the white ends from grocery store green onions right into the dirt.

I have grand plans for even more fresh produce to come out of my backyard– I will work on a longer post to fill you in. Hopefully i get more than the one pathetic tomato I got last summer though.
