So it has been several weeks since we have put in our vegetable garden and I have learned a few things along the way… (1) Corn can get blown over in a wind storm. (2) Japanese beetles do not look like lady bugs, they are green and shiny and are quite larger than your average lady bug. (3) Watering your garden is recommended, especially with high temperatures. (4) Pea plants hate the heat so planting them before May 15 (if you live in Kentucky) is recommended, sadly all of ours burned up. (5) A garden fence does not keep the moles.
As you can see I’ve had a fun time learning the gardening way. A few days ago we picked our first banana pepper and had it on a few hamburgers. They were quite delicious! I am looking forward to our corn being ready probably in just a few more weeks.
