Vegetable Gardening, Part IV

Recently I got some new friends out on the balcony. Their names are Spider Mite Steve, Spider Mite Bob, Spider Mite Jane, and Spider Mite..... Yes, I had a spider mite infestation. They were everywhere, every plant out there was infected, and there I was wondering why the pole beans were dying. It was a little too late by the time we did something. A week has gone by since we treated the plants, all but the beans survived. We took down all the remaining bean stems yesterday. The good news is that every tomato plant is producing at least a dozen or more of tomato and the pepper plants are flowering.

Good bye, Mr. Zucchini.

Devastation! It was a battlefield on the balcony.

As sad as I was about taking the beans down, I managed to harvest almost a pound of it. Perhaps more bean seedlings in a couple weeks?

At least I got the Miss Cherry Tomato on time.

 And I got these babies to look forward to.
