I’ve been terrible at keeping this updated with plant growth. Between traveling, working, art shows and tending to the garden, I’ve been having quite a busy summer.
My garden, for the most part, is doing well. I’ve had a few hitches along the way but aside from the cucumbers, everything is working out wonderfully.
The cucumbers are currently being attacked by Cucumber Beetles. I’ve never had experience with this little guys in the past. I’m not sure if it’s the variety of cucumber I’m growing or just something to do with the year. I usually grow Marketmore Cucumbers but couldn’t find plants this year and elected not to grow them from seed, a mistake I’ve been regretting all season. I’m not a fan of cucumbers typically, but love Marketmores.
To take care of this problem, hopefully, I’ll be investing in some Lacewings and maybe some ladybugs as well.
