Short one again today.
I figured this would happen starting out my garden this year, but gardening while pregnant is getting tougher and tougher, especially while chasing after two 3 year olds! And it stinks that it is right when the squash bugs, striped cucumber beetles and SVB's are in full force...I just don't have the energy to go out there twice a day or even sometimes once a day to do battle! But I am happy to be getting a small return so far! These are probably the last 3 zucchini from my svb damaged plants. I think I am going to pull them when I get around to getting out there to do it! I have some succession ones growing so I hope they will be OK and get some fruits!
I probably got about 10 zucchini from 3 plants before they were destroyed!
The tomatoes were devoured right away by both twins. I really love having them watch me get things from the garden or help because they seem to want to eat them more! It is very satisfying. Especially since I have been trying since they began to eat to give them a healthy diet and learn to like veggies. And dd likes a lot of veggies! She'll try almost anything. Ds on the other hand is a little trickier. Tonight I told him his sweet potato was "sweet potato pudding"! He ate two servings! Too bad it wasn't home grown...I haven't ventured that far yet!
So, when I start my garden in the late winter early spring, I will by then have a 4 mo old. I wonder how well I will keep up with the garden then...hopefully he is sleeping through the night by then! Here's hoping!
