That pesky little garden! August 11, 2011

I am finally starting to see some of the fruits of our labor! Beautiful cherry tomatoes and a few lemon cukes were ready when my hubby and I returned from our weekend anniversary camping getaway!

But along with all of the good is, of course, the not so good.

I have taken pictures of several of the “problem” areas in my garden and I am hoping some of you super green thumbs or garden gurus might have words of wisdom as to what is causing the problem and how I can fix it!

My rosemary is growing on the top, but it has become scraggly and as you can see the bottom is not doing well. I think one problem is that I have not harvested on a consistent basis. I also should maybe be either replanting it or finding a permanent home for it in the ground. But I love it and want it to survive and thrive and it is being neglected… help…

This is one of my cucumber plants, a few of them have this problem. It looks like something may be eating along the stem?? In several places where this has happened all of the plant past the spot has browned and withered away. Any ideas?

What is eating my Morning Glory?

What is causing the brown spots on my green zebra tomatoes? It has gotten lots of blossoms, but each time the blossoms fall off and no fruit sets.

Why is some of the sage on my beautiful sage plant dying. This has been one of my steadfast plants, lasted the winter and thrived through the crazy spring weather – now I do not know why parts of it are dying.

But, in happier garden reporting – the unknown plant that came up and I am letting grow has blossomed. Is it a gourd maybe??

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I look forward to hearing some of your thoughts on what is going on with my garden’s problem areas. Please share my post through your social media channels or forward it on to your friends!

Have a wonderful day and enjoy some gardening in this beautiful weather, I know we are going to! My garden smells absolutely divine right now. We finally snagged a couple of buckets of Chico Chai mulch and spread it out in the garden, and not only am I excited about the benefits of it to my soil and plants – but seriously – my garden smells AMAZING right now! Here is Bizz spreading the mulch around the marigolds that he planted!
