I really need to get out there sooner.....

Here is the sky, barely.

It's been so hot, its the only time I want to be outside....

We went on a field trip to some local gardens this past week and apparently I'm not the only one having pepper issues.

This one got eaten by an insect. Not a good year for the peppers. I see a couple more forming on my plant, lets hope I get to eat at least one...........

And hopefully I will have something other than plants and cats to post soon. Not much of anything is getting done here.

If you can find it, get a small spray bottle of Havahart Deer Off. It repells rabits and deer and squirrel, and it is very effective.

For the bugs, there are dusting powders you can use that will keep them at bay. Hey, you have to do all you can if you want to enjoy a HARVEST! LOL

We had great sucess with coffee ground. Sprinke about a cup on the dirt around each plant. You can also make a "brew" out of the used grounds, and spray it on the leaves.
Steve did some research and apparently the caffine enters the bug's nervous system and give them a heart attack. And we drink this stuff.....

Squirrels are kind of cute but can sure wreak havoc in a garden. Here they love to chow down on the tulips and crocus, bulbs, flowers, you name it. With our crazy spring, it's going to be a while before anything much gets going in our garden...except weeds probably.
Love those kitties!
