PLANTED THE GROW BEDS THIS WEEKEND

Yes I finally got to planting the beds with the seedlings that I started. I now have celery , Basil, two varieties of tomato, cucumbers, onions and rosemary sprigs I am rooting close to the tomatoes to help with pest control. I also have three cuttings from my raspberry bush that I am rooting. They became casualties of a over exuberant dog behind us. She chewed them off the fence. Now I wish I had the bushes with the thorns ,..not really.

So without further ado the pictures…….

IMG_0068Put the celery in soda bottle to keep them in a bunch instead of spreading out like they were. Have a small aphid and little white bug problem. Have tried spraying with water,. Going to place some yellow Solo cups with oil on them to try to draw the aphids off. Also going to mix up some pepper and soap spray.

Ok here is part of the reason it took me so long to update this blog. We got a rescue dog from the no kill shelter. She is a Lab Springer Spaniel mix. Her name is Maggie and she is 2 1/2 months old. Going to be a big dog . So I have been doing potting training duty. She is a good dog , but you know how puppies are .

Well thats it for now will keep this posted as often as I can.
