Kudos to Last Year's Garden!
You totally beat me.
You won, I lost.
It started with Bambi attacking my tomato leaves
and then came the tomato worms.
It ended with the mosquitos, fire ants, chiggers and snakes.
Every time I went out to water/check-on/harvest the garden I came back having experienced the miserable "joy" of at least one of the above.
This year I moved my garden to the back deck.
Yesterday, Matt and I planted lots of tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, jalapenos, cilantro and basil.
All in containers and elevated from the deer, fire ants, chiggers and snakes.
They are all baby plants now but hopefully they'll grow and provide us with some delicious herbs and vegetables.
PS. On the way home from church today we stopped by PetSmart to buy an algae-eating fish.
Our fish tank is a-thriving which means algae is a-growing.
Our new fish "Windex" has plenty of work to do.
