Going to need some more bamboo for the tomato trellis....
Also, added a red bell pepper plant
So far, this is the best my garden has ever looked. It makes me nervous, like at any moment it is going to implode. This morning when I went out to water, I found about 30 aphids on the bamboo trellis. Of course I went into panic mode and picked them all off. Then I obsessively went outside every hour to check for more of them. I am also paranoid about horn worms--last year I found 7 on one plant. Disgusting. I still cringe when thinking about them-blech.
Everything has gotten huge--with the exception of the jalepeno plant. That one just baffles me. It is the exact same size as when I planted it, but still green and healthy. It is even starting to flower. Do jalepenos stay that small?? I need to do some research...
