The Gardening Chronicles – May 20th 2020

Okay, just a quick update today.

In the last 10 days, things have grown quickly! I really think that the homemade compost packed a punch and is helping my little babies grow even more.


I made my own bug repellent because I didn’t want to buy any harsh chemicals to keep little friends away. This is a mix of castille soap, water, and peppermint oil. It seems to be working pretty well. It’s keeping the bugs off of everything except the fucking spinach. Some little critters are eating holes in all of my beautiful spinach leaves and it’s breaking my heart. I may need to add some chili powder to the mix, I heard that works well too.

What do you use for bug repellent in your garden?
