Salad, Beans, Tomatoes and Potato Bugs!

Posted by on Jul 22, 2013 in Maine | No Comments


I picked our first salad. I picked our first beans (green and wax). We noticed that there are now green baby tomatoes on the vine. So exciting. All is thriving and well in the garden, or so it seemed.

And then I noticed the potatoes and the infestation of horrible little bugs (and some not so little) munching on the leaves and taking down whole plants.

A new task, smushing, cutting and burning these hungry fellows.

Sunday morning in Paris? Croissants, brunch and cappuccino. Sunday morning in Maine? Picking produce, watering the garden, fighting against mosquitos, beetles flies, and squashing hordes of nasty bugs on my potatoes!

I must confess that after the watering, picking and crushing . . .  I did eat a delicious croissant from the local bakery. Yumm!
