We would have lots of tomatoes by now except that other animals keep eating them. Hmm. Sketchy. I am spraying them with soapy water which seems to keep most bugs away. I'm growing a pepper plant and basil in the screened-in porch in hopes that gophers and rabbits will not get to them. Aphids, however, love the pepper blossoms!
Anyway. I suppose that's the price we have to pay for living in the woods.
On the bright side (literally), on Tuesday night we saw the fireworks in Grape Day Park from our little perch on the hill, and didn't have to deal with any crowds. So nice!!!
