I love my little garden! So far, the peas aren't doing so well, thanks to a bunch of slugs and aphids. (They also devoured Jesse's flower garden. We have since planted new seeds, and they're doing well - poppies, nasturtiums, and more giant sunflowers, as well as his snap dragon.) I was desperate to save my cucumbers and tomatoes, so I have to admit that I caved and used traditional vegetable pesticides. After I did it, I stopped by the Bluffton Farmers' Market and found our "gardening expert" who gave me a huge list of ways to get rid of pests without spraying them with chemicals. Well....next time....
