Our Garden Update

So...Here are pics from May 18th...below are the pics from this week to compare!

In the garden growing process...I figured it was a great time for a Science Lesson on Parts of the Flower and Pollination.  That sent us outside to find and photograph pollination in progress!

AND Here are pics of the garden on May 25

Our biggest baby

Bell Pepper is getting bigger!

Cherry Tomatoes

Going to be YUMMY!

Radishes are just about the easiest thing to plant and harvest!  It only takes about 3 - 4 weeks from seed to harvest!

Another flying bug??

And...bad news...I learned today that our squash has been attacked by the SVB (Squash Vine Borer).  Grrrr....we are quite upset.  Remember the "velvet ant" that I posted about a while back...well...turns out they are not velvet ants at all and they are the adult versions of this pest.  Not sure what I'm going to do about this problem...will have to hit the nursery tomorrow and see what they suggest.  :(  The first one I found was in a squash, but after further inspection I found a LOT of them in the stems.

The "entry" point - where the egg was attached and larva developed
