I have to tell you, The Mr is super smart. And he can do just about anything.
Last week, when the (stupid) mouse was eating our plants, he built the plants some screened-in-porches. Very cool!
And - they work wonderfully!
The strawberries are flourishing....
The struggling volunteer peas are making a comeback...
And the peppers have all kinds of new growth!
Also growing this week - tomatoes! I wasn't sure (still haven't actually seen a ripe one) that we'd get any ant all, but we've got tons of little ones, so it keeps getting more and more likely that we'll have some beautiful red tomatoes from the garden one of these days.
And our first pumpkin is getting some color!
fried green tomatoes if I thought our tomato crop would be large. Maybe after the first ones start to ripen.
The sun certainly seems to be shining on our garden this week! I'll be picking a bunch of hot peppers later (you'll have to check back later this week to see what I'll be doing with them) and come on back next week to see what another week brings - in the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.
