The Moreau Community Garden was very peaceful this morning. I could hear turkeys off in the distance and that’s about it.
I went about my business of taking care of the 10 plots I maintain for the Family Gardening Program that begins soon. And, I made some notes in my journal of what I did, what I saw, and any other information that helps keep track of what’s happening in the garden.
I swear this weed can hide because when I am done weeding and start to water, I always find some that escaped my first round of weed patrol.
If you said Lamb’s Quarters, you’re right.
I refreshed the spray bottle of neem oil this morning. I saw that some of you have cucumber beetles on your squash. Remember to spray the adults directly to eliminate this problem. Don’t spray when it is above 80 degrees. And check for reddish eggs on the underside of leaves. If you see these, remove them immediately and destroy.
Here are some pictures to enjoy.
Thank you to Sara McKay for her help spreading wood chips. It is appreciated.
Hope to meet you in the garden, Natalie
