I planted a small garden this year. It's only my second one, and it has seemed to be a success so far.
In this big tub, I planted carrots and beets.
And then, I also had two smaller pots with salad greens.
They grew nicely, don't you think?
At one point, my salad greens began hosting a colony of aphids, so I attacked them by dumping 1500 (yes, 1500) ladybugs on top. It was overkill, but it definitely worked!
And so now, I'm ready to begin harvesting my garden. I was so excited about the carrots - nice round tops were peaking up out of the soil. They looked so perfect! And then, I pulled a few...
What happened??? Those of you who garden, why are my carrots so short and stubby?
Alas...I guess the purple thumb strikes again.
