Stupid Beetles

Thing are growing fast! Especially the greens, we're harvesting lettuce and chard several times a
poor bean leaves
week and can barely keep up! We put in a row of raspberries, leaving room for more.

But you know what's not so cool? BUGS EATING MY STUFF. The beetles have arrived, and they're working their way through my beans. A bucket of hot, soapy water is one of my favorite ways to deal with beetles. Knock them off the leaves into the bucket and they drown. No pesticides, easy peasy.
bye bye bugs
