I finally weeded out the gardens and it was a Jungle … only 1 week away and things grew like crazy! I figure it rained a whole bunch – judging from the water on the pool cover and the growth! I did harvest my first batch of Sugar Snap Peas and they are so sweet!
I harvested Yarrow for drying and for the first time Globe Amaranth with Baby’s Breath. I expected the Globe Amaranth to be bigger than it actually is – I had visions of a huge flower, but not so.
I also found a HUGE moth just sitting on the spinach. I googled it and found it to be a Carpenter Worm Moth which sounds like a very damaging insect to trees, especially fruit trees.
I also spotted some tiny white eggs on the back of a leaf of spinach … Ick!
