Our garden-2016

Are you growing a garden this year? I always love documenting what we're growing and looking back on previous years, which I've linked here: 2012 2013 2014 2015

We've got two little gardens. I wanted to continue our tradition of having a container garden, so I planted three each of brussels sprouts and broccoli.

Unfortunately, a pest has invaded those plants. From the research I did, I believe they're sawflies.
 Broccoli plant.
Here's my pest caught in action. I actually removed most of these by hand over the last couple of days. It has not been fun! I hope that I have caught them early enough to save the plants. They also invaded our rose plants.
I think I caught a sawfly parent in action and he or she was checking on her larvae. 
Craig was in charge of planting the tomatoes and peppers in a little garden at the edge of our woods. Two of the tomato plants that we purchased in early May are taller than me! I seriously don't think I've ever seen tomato plants grow that tall before.
Happy to see his garden is healthy since I am on the fence about mine right now!
I'll be sure to check back in late summer/early fall to update you on how my plants did after the sawfly infestation!
