Summer's getting near

Everything's growing and some more are beginning to bloom, like the pumpkin. The peas have already begun producing and are getting plumper and I have a couple small green tomatoes. The blueberries and strawberries are doing great.

I'm also very excited that my canary bird vine is blooming.

I do, however have a couple problems. Problem 1 is some cat using the raised beds as litter boxes. Pretty sure it caused the death of my only two cucumbers. This sent me over the edge. I already don't like cats. I have put sticks in the open spaces it is using in an attempt to deter it. Hope it works!

Problem 2 is either caterpillars or beetles. Haven't been able to quite determine which, but I'm leaning towards beetles. They are eating my artichokes, beans, and have ever so lightly touched my potatoes. I am in process of creating a plan of attack.


  1. Wow I can't believe all those strawberries. Go out early a.m. or in the eve to see if you can find the bugs eating your veggies.

  2. Wow, what beautiful bowls of goodies!!!
