This past weekend brought copious amounts of much needed rain to our area. So much so, in fact, that we closed up the Grow Camp so it wouldn’t get water logged with the rapid rainfall. Sadly, I didn’t catch it in time for my microgreen trays. They were swamped. The rest of the garden looked lush and happy this morning, though.
The broccoli rabe is in the foreground above. He’s doing great! I’m glad I squeezed one in.
The lettuce blend I planted from seed has taken off! We’re having a big ol’ salad tomorrow for lunch!
Swiss chard is on the top left above.
Time for beer traps! These slugs are doing a number on my lettuce.
That’s me making faces at the slugs. In the foreground is the oregano from last year. It’s huge! And yes, I’m digging around in my garden in a white cardigan. Because I’m intelligent and practical like that. Ha.
I love all the lush green! Makes me happy on a cloudy day.

So beautiful. And I’ve noticed the little baby grey slimy destroyers the last couple of days as well. Must have just gotten warm enough.
I’ve instructed my hubberman to get some beer tomorrow. If I can’t get rid of them, maybe Samuel Adams can. LOL
Ugh. I remember the big, red slugs in the lettuce when I lived in Switzerland. So glad we don’t have them down here in the furnace that is Texas. Yuck.
These guys are little, but they have been inflicting a lot of damage! Just in the last few days, too. *sigh*
Everything is looking great. We are mulching now and starting to get our deck ready for when we plant in a few weeks.
Are you planting flowers, veggies or both?
I plant Rosemary, basil and flowers. This year I am planting some minature butterfly bushes that I got from the internet and are guarenteed to bloom this year and I am going to plant a couple off mini boxwoods with annuals in the pots so I have some greenery on the deck in the winter months.
Sounds lovely! Have fun planting.
I will I love it.
I never seem to on top of things where appropriate dress is concerned. I wear PJs for work (home office) and garden in them too.
LOL, yes, I’m right there with you… I was out in the garden this morning in quite an ensemble: NIght shirt, PJ pants, a cardigan and a jacket. Oh, and my Slogger clogs. What a sight! 🙂
You veg looks beautiful… the problem is that slugs never seem to go after ugly plants as they like the pretty ones too!
I agree! They have really left their mark on my pretty greens.
