Truthfully, they have not been too bad. They've been nibbling on my tiny green bean plants, but so far they haven't done a lot of damage. (Plus, now I've sprinkled cayenne pepper around the plants. Hopefully that keeps their little noses away).
May in general brings very little to report, which is maybe why I love gardening the most in the spring. So many possibilities, and after planting, very little to do. I did, however, start harvesting spinach this week, just a little at a time. It's glorious. I wish I would've planted more. Right now, it's just enough for a small salad for an occasional lunch though out the week.
It was quite cooler this weekend but my herbs continue to grow like crazy and soak up what sunshine we did have. I've especially enjoyed watching my cilantro plant shoot up like rocket.
I didn't do very much gardening this weekend (minus picking some spinach and checking to see if squash bugs have realized I've planted a zucchini plant in my yard. So far so good). I also generally did not do very much at all, just chilled with my cat.
Okay maybe I should backtrack a little since I think I can almost hear my boyfriend's disbelieve to that last statement. Minus couch time and Cheetos time, I also had bread baking time. I tried making banquettes for the first time in my life. And let me tell you, this is a 3 day process, well, at least if you use this recipe I used. Hopefully they taste okay.
happy weekend everyone!
