Jared Jared quite contrary, How does your garden grow?

Here's an update on our fall/winter vegetable garden. Man, did those little seeds sprout! And fast too. Most of the seed packets said they would germinate in 7 to 10 days. Well, Jared and Dad must have prepped the soil really well because those seeds germinated in about 2 to 3 days. Cool!

Jared loves, LOVES, to go check on our garden. He likes to check it in the morning (he would check it in his PJs and socks if Dad and Mama let him ;) ) and then when he comes home from school in the afternoon. It is very cute ;) So far, the veggies are doing well.

Here are some pictures of the garden on October 25th, 2009. They are much bigger now, especially the peas. I believe we will have to trellis the peas as soon as they get tall enough to do so. We can't wait to harvest what we've grown! Jared will be thrilled to see all of his veggies, ready to eat :D

The peasCarrotsThe radishes. They are probably doing the best; them and the peasThe mesclun lettuce blendAnd then the basil. Mama can't wait until the basil is ready to pick ;)Oh! Does anyone have advice on how to get rid of the bugs that are nipping at our veggie foliage? A spray perhaps, either store bought or homemade? I don't know what bug/creature it is but there is something lightly taking a bite or two. We'd appreciate the tip!

Looks great! Two things I've used on our roses are the organic vegetable oil pest spray (you can get it at Home Depot in a spray bottle) and ladybugs. Both would be safe for veggies I think. You could also ask the garden workers at Home Depot, they are very knowledgeable!
