It has been a relatively quiet week here in the garden. That, I am happy about. After my issues last week with woodchucks, and the week before with cucumber beetles and stink bugs, I figured I could use a week off! Of course I am writing this as I glance out my window and see another woodchuck…snacking on the weeds next to my chicken coop. I guess we will be setting the traps again!
It is amazing the difference a week makes in the garden though. We have had a lot of sun, and some rain at night, which my potted plants seem to love. My one cucumber plant in a pot seems to be doing exceptional – which is nice to see considering the ones in the garden are definitely fighting to stay alive.

The one thing I am great at growing right now? Weeds, of course. I realize that I have A LOT of weeds growing in the garden. I try and get out there when I can, but it doesn’t happen as often, or for as long a period of time as I need.
