Can this garden be saved?

Part of the reason that I haven’t posted lately is that whenever I try to take pictures of the garden (let alone pick a vegetable) it’s crazy bug world out there. If there isn’t a bee swarming close to my head, there’s a flurry of gnats, flies, etc. to torment me. However, today I decided to brave the outdoors and capture a few pictures. Here is what I found…

A tiny ladybug, nothing to fear.

I then moved on to the tomato plants and found…

I could write horror novel about this grasshopper. He was leering at me from his post. I knew he was after my tomatoes, but I didn’t want to risk shooing him from his spot and having him leap at me.

The second reason I was reluctant to post was this…

I have GOT to dig up this cabbage. It is long past its prime.

Our peppers are changing to a brilliant yellow, I’m hoping they turn red and delicious…

And finally this…

It’s a weed. As fast as we get rid of the weeds in the front beds they return. Boo.

Oh! And I am wishing right now I had decided to grow cucumbers this summer. My sister and her husband made these Refrigerator Pickles from Fly Through Our Window and they are SO GOOD!
