More Bugs

What are some organic ways to ward off pests? Particularly flying insects off of arugula and radishes.

Our patience with our bambino hybrid eggplant has been rewarded with 7 or 8 eggplants coming on this week -- more than twice what we have harvested all summer!

Bright Blue Skies

Three straight days of grey skies and endless rain have given way to bright blue skies.

Peppery radishes ripe for the picking.

An abundance of arugula and deer tongue lettuce.

Delicate carrot tops hint at the beauty below.

Bugs still swarming the arugula and radishes.

Harvest: 5 red grape tomatoes, 8 yellow pear tomatoes, 6oz of a mix of arugula, deer tongue lettuce, tom thumb lettuce, and mibuna asian mustard greens.

Quiet Harvest

Nothing to harvest today.

Tomatoes look good.

Much of the arugula eaten by bugs.

Muskmelons and watermelons don't seem to be getting any larger.

It seems the summer garden is coming to a close.
