Vegetables

Every year there seems to be a tipping point in the vegetable garden when the pests and diseases gain the upper hand. So far we’ve kept up with handpicking “bad” bugs, like the Mexican bean beetle and the cucumber beetle. Cabbage worms seem to be doing the most damage to the tender little heads trying to form…we remove them and new ones appear almost immediately. Yet for the most part everything is thriving—apparently enjoying the warm days and regular rainfall. We’ve eaten the last of our peas, enjoyed a steady supply of lettuce, and picked a few purple kohlrabi. Our summer squash grows almost before our eyes, and the tomato plants are big and healthy. Only our “auxiliary bed,” with eggplant, peppers, and three giant kohlrabi plants, is not flourishing.
