But everything else is doing beautifully. Take a look.
I don't mind thinning the arugula as the tiny leaves are delicious in my summer salads! :)
Beets (which, BTW, I've already thinned :)
As you can see, the vegetables are thriving and growing very well. But as always, it's a constant battle with the bugs! :/ The cabbage loppers and mealy bugs have been particularly bad this year. Every other day I pick a few cabbage loppers off the broccoli and Brussels sprouts...GRRRR. I also spray the plants every couple of days with GreenLight BT worm killer. It does a pretty good job of keeping the bugs at bay, but it requires constant vigilance on my part.
I'm pretty pleased with the progress of my fall garden so far. And my new fence has done a *wonderful* job of keeping the deer out. We were gone for about a week at the end of August/early September and nothing got in my garden to wreak havoc and destroy all my hard work! And that makes me happy :)
