Observations of Organic Gardening





I have never grown peppers that develop in this fashion.  They are getting to be good sized, and seem as though they may succumb to gravity any day now.  This last photograph gets a big EEEUUWWW!!!  factor, something has been eating my greens.  In my fridge.  After the lettuce has been soaked, spun, and put in the storage container.  EEEUUWWW!!!  We never did find it, but I probably don't need to tell you that salad is no longer on the menu this evening, or for the rest of the week.   EEEUUWWW!!!

EEEUUWWW!!! Yep, that's organic gardening at its finest! I had a live earwig in my bowl of ice cubes the other day. I know he wasn't living in my freezer, which meant he was living somewhere on me.

Double EEEUUWWWW!! Yuck. I hate unexpected visitors like that. Thank goodness you noticed it before you bit him in two.

Love the garlic picture up top.

EEEUUWWW is right! I'm sure we've all eaten an insect egg or two. A baby slug perhaps? We just have to remind ourselves that it's a lot been then a mouth full of pesticides!

That's the only good thing about lettuce refusing to grow in the heat right now... no eggs! I hate those earwigs in there, too! Grin and bear it, Kelly, that's what you get for growing healthy food - it's healthy for all the bugs too LOL! Nice pics, hope the weather is being good to you!
