The carrot rust fly looks similar to the common house-fly with a dark-green body and yellow extremities and head. The carrot rust fly itself doesn’t do the damage, but their larvae is particularly bad for your plants. The adults lay their eggs early spring on the surface of the soil then the pests hatch a couple days later as creamy white larvae and tunnel into the roots of your plants causing slow growth and sometimes death.
Carrots are tough to germinate, but are easy to take care of once they do. We love to grow all different colors and varieties, and the kids have a blast pulling them up!
We’re harvesting our carrots to make room for more beans, peppers, okra, New Zealand spinach, and squash.
We ❤️ our seeding square!! It has so many great uses including educating kids about colors and getting them active in planting in your garden!

We’ve had an unexpected cool-down in August and it’s been wonderful. We’ve started planting our fall season crops and the kids planted carrots, beets, and lettuce this weekend. We also let Junior play out in the garden for the first time and caught his first time standing on camera!
We’ll be planting more of this as well as other fall crops like cabbage, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, spinach, kale, garlic, peas, and beans over the coming weeks.
This Instant Pot Sweet Potato Soup recipe is a great addition to your cold-weather meal ideas. We usually have an abundance of sweet potatoes that we grow in our garden around this time so this recipe works great to add in a lot of our fresh ingredients from the garden!
