Garden Update

The garden is doing well. The tomatoes and pumpkin plants are doing best. The watermelon and cantaloupe are also doing well. The bell pepper plants and strawberry plants have started growing (finally!). The only issue we have run into is a crop of Cabbage Loopers. They have been crazy hard to get rid of. I've tried all sorts of organic sprays but the only thing that has really worked is finding them and getting rid of them via trash can. They don't eat the fruit or crop but they eat all the leaves and its pretty darn unsightly. We started using fish emulsion and it has really helped the growth of the plants. I would completely recommend it. We purchased ours at our local Lowes.
