As many of you are aware, I have been extremely excited about my garden this summer and have been sharing this journey with you.
I have sad news to report. Last weekend when I was out of town, there was an invasion of sorts (bugs) and I came home to a sad sight. The green bean and cucumber plants are done.
They looked like they had dried out. I knew this couldn’t be true because arrangements were made for watering to occur in my absence, and it rained while I was gone. Upon further inspection I found bugs. I believe they are the reason for this disaster.
So, with a heavy heart, I pulled up the beans and cucumber, and bug dusted the tomato and pepper plants so as to prevent spreading of this ‘issue’.
Then I came inside and turned these:
and it made me feel a little better.
I’ll probably feel even better when this homemade juice makes its way into a frosty mug with a bud light…and I can toast to the good that came from the garden before the bugs spoiled it all.
Happy Weekend, All-
