Over the past two days I have been on the rampage. I’ve planted, planted, planted. Everything from seeds to seedlings. Everywhere from the kitchen garden to the back garden.
Carrots: Scarlet Nantes, Danvers, Paris
Surprise Lilies (from Ray’s grandma)
And even with all this planting, I have even more to plant. I have baggies with seed packs lined up by date/week of planting. After this planting blitz, I’m caught up to this week so I’ll be putting the oregano, lavender and lettuce in tomorrow.
While digging holes and trenches, Joe and I found several of these little guys. Joe squeezed the first one but I managed to keep this one intact.
What is it? A hornworm pupae.
Last year, we had tobacco hornworms. This year it looks like we will have them again.
I guess we should have let the chickens loose in the garden a little bit more before planting because when we threw this one in with them, it didn’t last long.
