Well my garden is a mess, and I’m feeling discouraged, which makes me not want to plant anymore.
There is a critter eating all my greens. I think it’s a chipmunk(s)
- My peas are almost stumps, I think in a day or two they will probably be gone.
- I had such hopes for the Asian greens this year. My husband and I build a little covering with coat hangers, scrap metal, and a roll of fiberglass screen to keep out the white moths (which bring the green worms) but they are clearly being nibbled by the critter.
- And even my beet greens, which I thought were doing well, now seem to be disappearing to nubs.
Looking at the positive, the snap peas planted in a large recycling bin are doing quite well, so that should make me happy right?
I’m not. I’m in a garden funk.
My mother-in-law gave us a few of her excess plants, and all I’ve planted were 3 eggplants. I have a couple tomatoes and red peppers to plant, but I just feel sad. I’m not sure what’s wrong exactly, maybe the weather? I’m just feeling discouraged.
