Lots of green in the garden this year with all this rain. And lots of bugs—caterpillars of all shapes and sizes, japanese beetles, flea beetles, earwigs, aphids, lily leaf beetles, leaf miners, cucumber beetles and more! I was getting a little cocky, thinking I knew so much about gardening... then bam! Bugs hit every nook and cranny in my garden this year alongside slugs, snails, mildew and wilt. Year 6 in the garden has definitely been my hardest. I can't imagine what a life of a farmer is like! Every day is a battle, especially if you're an organic gardener, I'm sure. I shouldn't complain though — I've got enough zucchini to build a small house.
