    So I did a small harvest off my garden _MG_5525.JPG _MG_5526.JPG
    with the storm we had I was expecting less. Between the hail, the grasshoppers, and the heat I lost everything in my pallet garden and my little man's garden so I need to figure something out for next year. We also have a strip of gravel between our drive and the neighbors fence so I might talk advantage of that and put a container garden there.
    So what is everyone's favorite way of pest control when you bring your bounty inside. Mine is a sink of cold water with a little bit of apple cider vinegar, I just put all the produce in and let the earwigs die then when I remember I have a sink of produce I swish it around and rinse every thing off before putting it in a basket or using it. I have a terrible memory _MG_5536.JPG
