Houston, we have zucchini. 🙌🏽 But we also have a problem. *Cue cartoon of rocket spiraling down and smashing into the earth.* Squash bugs. I picked off a bunch of adults a few weeks ago, and all the eggs I could find a couple weeks later, but now they’re overflowing with nymphs. Only the zucchini, thankfully, but still, it’s a bummer, and I’m not sure what to do! Not to be a wimp but there are so many and they’re so small and swarm-y that I can’t imagine actually picking them off. I’m considering releasing a couple young turkeys in the garden to eat them, but considering the turkeys haven’t free ranged before I’m concerned about a) losing them and b) them not figuring out how to eat the bugs in the time we actually have to watch them. This concern is compounded by the fact that I won’t have time to do anything intensive for about another 12 days 😔 I’m hoping that I can still save the plants, but they’re being hit pretty hard, this is the only squish to successfully grow out of about seven that were pollinated. So I’ll keep thinking and trying and researching and hopefully we’ll still get a harvest, but I’m not gonna let worry over it cloud the next couple weeks 👊🏼 #jubileefarmtexas #jubileefarmgarden #backtoedengarden #raisedbedgarden #squarefootgarden #texasgarden #homestead #texashomestead #instagramhomesteaders #zucchini #squashbugs #pestcontrol #organicpestcontrol

That’s one big cherry! The cherry tomato plants have been holding most of my attention lately. The two we first planted are just now hitting their stride and now I obsessively check on them to make sure the plants stay healthy. This is the biggest fruit so far! Now I’m testing my patience as we wait for them to ripen on the vine!

Is anyone able to identify this melon? Found a handful of seeds growing in the side yard, so I transplanted a few. I don't remember putting them there. The pictures are the same plants/fruits in different stages. . . . . . . #mysteryfruit #mysterymelon #growit #growingfun #gardening #gardenlife #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #vines #melons #raisedbedgarden #raisedbedplanters #socalgarden #backyardproduce #citystead #granolagirl #vegetarian #urbangarden #backyardgarden #fruit #summer #summertime #gardentotable

Article: Raised bed gardening Raised garden beds produce significantly larger yields than traditional beds. They can be situated on the ground or on solid surfaces such as pathways or flat roof areas. They can be free standing in the open or build adjacent to a wall (3 sided) to provide better frame support. #growyourown #gyo #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #raisedgardenbeds Read More: https://kitchen-garden.be/gardening-why-garden/raised-bed-gardening

When you ignore your #garden for a couple days because you go out of town, you get rewarded?! 🤔🤷‍♀️ . Along with a nice little #harvest , I found MORE #squashbugs so they got a nice helping of #sevin. . The #sungoldtomato plant is growing much taller than the others! I'm 5'1" and it's taller than me. When we got home, the plant and cage were on it's side so I'm guessing we had a storm. 💨 A lot of other stuff fell over as well. . Had to separate the #peaplants because they fell off the trellis and were grabbing on to each other. . #kansasgarden #raisedbedgarden #summer2018 #summergarden #growyourfood

Yesterday one of the gardeners at @lasmilpitas asked me to recommend a good gardening book for beginners and I suggested she start with Jane Nyhuis' excellent book, "Desert Harvest - A Guide to Vegetable Gardening in Arid Lands". Although sometimes hard to find, this 65 page book is by far the best book on desert vegetable gardening I've ever read. Even though it was written in 1982 the information contained within was so ahead of its time it's still relevant today. I've seen this book on Amazon for hundreds of dollars (currently two on sale for $900🤔) and at @bookmansaz for less than $5. I'm not sure why they are so expensive online, but if you go to enough estate sales or browse the garden section at Bookmans you'll find one easily enough. #shelfiesunday 📚 • • • • • #victorygarden #victorygardens #raisedbed #raisedbeds #raisedbedgarden #raisedgardenbeds #frontyardgarden #containergardening #porchgarden #raisedgardenbeds #gardenbed #gardenbeds #bookmans #usedbooks #oop #outofprint #tucson #tucsonaz #gardeningbooks #gardenbook

First time I’ve ever cooked with veggies that I grew myself!!!! 👩🏼‍🌾 I made cheesy baked summer squash with a little jalapeño and onion mixed in. Turned out so good!! 🌶🧀 #soproud 🙌🏻 My 4 year old was so excited about veggies from our garden that he ate it too and it’s usually a serious struggle to get any veggies in that kid #momwin #growyourownfood #firsttimegardener #gardening #veggiegarden #fruitofmylabor #summersqaush #yellowsquash #jalepenos #igrewthis #celebrateeverything #keto #ketodiet #ketodinner #ketorecipes #lowcarb #lowcarbmeal #lowcarbdinner #lchf #ketogirl #ketosis #ketofam #raisedbedgarden

Back from a two week holiday to a very courgettey, green beaney garden 😝...only a few drought casualties thankfully. Basket full of green beans, runnerbeans, broccoli (round two), peas, round and regular courgette, kalettes, broadbean 👩‍🌾 #summer #growyourown #raisedbedgarden #gardening #urbanfarm #mygarden #growyourownfood #instagardener #kitchengarden #gardentoplate #homegrown #freshproduce #farm #crop #vegetables #eatfresh # #ediblegarden #greenfingers #fresh #herbs #broccoli #peas #broadbean #greens #leafy #healthy #greenthumb #harvest #glut #courgette

New garden bed in the works! This cleanup was pretty difficult as it was filled with all sorts of weeds. Stay tuned as we finish it up this week!

Something pecked a hole into one of my #tomatillo husks, so I thought it was a great opportunity to take a peek inside and see how the fruit is growing. It’s about an inch and a half diameter and undamaged by whatever pecked it open. Multiple this by about 20, and that about how many are currently at this stage, with about 20 or so more small and still growing. #growyourownfood #gardeninginthecity #containergarden #urbangardener #urbangardening #squarefootgardening #raisedbedgarden #ilovetogarden #blackgirlswithgardens #vegangardener #petersongardenproject #hellohoward

Can anyone tell me why my 🎃 pumpkin is yellow?? My decorative pumpkin I left in my raised bed took over! I only have one 3 week old football-sized pumpkin and it has been 💯% yellow, but recently got green stripes. As this Texas heat kicks in, I’m hoping to have at least one ripe pumpkin in the fall. 🎃 ❤️ . . . . . . #texasheat 🔥 #pumpkin 🎃 #pumpkin #pumpkinfarm #pumpkingarden #raisedbed #raisedbedgarden #needgardenhelp #naturenerd #needgardeningadvice #growingpumpkins #zinnias #whatawonderfulworld #restingkitty #catintheshade

Pickling cucumbers coming our way. At least I hope they are! Our vines got a slow start but have really taken off the past week or so. I’m a bit curious as to how they’ll perform. Our friends a couple miles away have already harvested pounds and pounds of their cucumbers, so I’m hoping these will start to as well! I’ve dead-headed the faster growing vine so hopefully we’ll see some progress.
