    How fun! It is so neat when you can start getting things from the garden.

    mine is looking pretty good so far. Nothing dying at this point, but nothing getting really big or veggies yet. I am getting some sort of bug that is chewing on my basil plant though!

    I would recommend getting some kind of pesticide before the bug gets out of hand. That was my problem last year.

    WOOHOO!!!!!!!! i have to share, I planted a peony root back at the end of May and wasn't seeing any progress from it. I coudn't see the eyes so i dug it up several times to see if anything was happening and finally realized it was panted upside down, and then sideways when i noticed some eyes growing. I talked to my MIL who has a background as a florist and she told me to just leave it as they take their time. Today i was watering and I saw some green starting to poke out!!! sooo excited that it is working and i can finally leave it alone lol

    All my plants were doing great in my new raised beds... then I noticed that some of the beet tops were turning grey and shriveling and sying. Yesterday I noticed that a LOT of them had (I hadn't been out for a few days because of being tired and rain). I don't see any bugs anywhere. I haven't taken a photo yet. A quick look at internet suggestions suggests a deficiency of some kind... Any ideas?

    Too much water perhaps?? I think of beets as problem free except for critters. (voles etc)

    Well boo. I am not sure what the problem could be.
