While we love having our pet rabbit to help with making free fertilizer, wild rabbits can be quite troublesome for your garden. These small mammals like to eat a lot of your greens and can be tricky to manage once they know where the food is. It is important to keep them out of your garden to protect your food!
These slimy creatures will eat just about anything in the garden. Slugs and snails typically will come out during the night time or on cloudy days. They are fairly easy to manage in your garden with these steps!
These small rodents can be challenging and can destroy a garden! Voles (Field Mice) are usually first spotted by their ~3-inch holes they make in raised beds. Once you see these, it’s time to get into action before they get out of hand.
Cutworms are the caterpillar of a brown or gray night-flying moth. The caterpillars are black, gray, or brown and are about an inch and a half long. These jerks can go through your entire garden of new seedlings extremely quickly! It’s important to watch out for them in your garden and do your best to protect again them. They look like little brown worms, and they like to spin around into circles around the plant, cutting it off at the base.
We don’t have to worry about deer here in the city, but those of you in the country know all too well how destructive and challenging deer can be. They can jump over any fence shorter than 8 feet, and there are very few things they won’t eat.
These vegetable/fruit juices are incredible because you can continue to switch it up to get different tastes and keep staying healthy! Try all sorts of combinations!
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.
