Veggie Garden Adventures


We have warned all of you of the dangers of an aggressive veggie garden. The zucchini have been the most dangerous aggressors this year. We fought them back for a bit, until Dog Dad forbid us to attack them anymore. Now the green peppers are under assault. First the peppers and then the world, just remember you were warned. Sure, you say it can never happen. That is what the peppers thought, too. Sure, they thought, what's so bad about having zucchini next door. Now they are taking over the whole raised bed. They've already grabbed us a few times.


This giant is ready for the kitchen. Despite its hostile nature, Mom and Dad have been enjoying quite a few Zucchini dishes. They've even been able to share with neighbors.



Look at this brave pepper trying to grow despite the ongoing plant hostilities.



The tomatoes are still in their crates cages, but they are trying to break out.


Mom was pleased to see some are ripe and ready to eat.


Mom has a weeding planned as even the nasty Zucchini can get killed off when the weeds take over.

  2. Wow looks like you will have a bumper harvest this year. We are doing well with beans and tomatoes and courgettes. Our little garden has been taken over. Where am I supposed to sun bathe I say? Have a terrific Tuesday.
